Eighty One: a world premiere ballet by choreographer Jessica Lang set to a commissioned score by Jakub Ciupinski, one of the pioneers in the exhilarating field of gesture-controlled music. Eighty One is an abstract exploration of ballet. Lang created this work in silence without being held to limits of time, energy or tempo, while Ciupinski adapted his electronic score around the movement ideas, patterns, and physical phrasing. It is a creation that incorporates technology, physically exposing raw edges and intentionally random thought. [program notes from the playbill]
