Rioult-dance1

Founded in 1994, RIOULT Dance NY is an established name in modern dance with a reputation for presenting the sensual, articulate, and musical works of Pascal Rioult. The program includes:

On Distant Shores is based on Euripides’ Helen in which Helen of Troy’s reputation is redeemed. Score by Aaron Jay Kernis.

Views of the Fleeting World was inspired by the woodcut prints of the Japanese master Hiroshige and set to J.S. Bach’s exploration of fugal counterpoint, The Art of Fugue.

Bolero is a bold interpretation of Ravel’s musical score – a riveting tour de force.

“…there are few choreographers currently creating who can rival Pascal Rioult for musicality, structure and dramatic nuance.”
– Philip Gardner, Oberon’s Grove
