This year's December concert from the Sharon Disney Lund School of Dance at CalArts will be anchored by a restaging of Twyla Tharp's Torelli, an ensemble piece originally performed in separate locations throughout New York City on May 28, 1971.

From the REDCAT website:

[Torelli], which follows the course of a day in the country, begins in silence with a set of everyday, matter-of-fact movement phrases before developing a "rustic humor" as the dancers build improvisations to the Baroque elegance of Giuseppe Torelli's Concerto in D Minor.

The program also includes the premieres of new works choreographed by CalArts faculty Laurence Blake and Andre Tyson.
