For two decades Rachid Ouramdane has been at the forefront of European dance, blurring the line between performer and choreographer, dance and documentary. Ouramdane is the founder of Company L’A, and now co-director of the National Choreographic Center of Grenoble.


TORDRE (WROUGHT) 

Two of Ouramdane’s longtime collaborators —Lora Juodkaite and Annie Hanauer— perform lonely solos in a haunting duet. Intensely physical performances of hypnotic, whirling gestures foreground the specificity of each woman’s body as she paints a raw, captivating self-portrait. Compelling in its repetition, Ouramdane’s choreography pushes the performers to find the gesture that makes them who they are. 

LOCATION: Baryshnikov Arts Center, Jerome Robbins Theater, 450 W 37th Street, NYC 
DATES & HOURS: Thu, Oct 13–Sat, Oct 15 at 8pm
