Based on the life of ballet legend George Balanchine, THREE MOVEMENTS follows a fictional choreographer, Alex, as he nurses polio-stricken Sonia, his wife and his greatest dancer. Unable to face the reality that she will never dance again, he convinces himself that he can save his muse. When he becomes frustrated with her lack of progress, though, he leaves her to pursue a promising young dancer, Lindsay. The play examines the complex relationship between choreographer and dancer, the power of eroticism in art, and how people choose (or refuse) to confront illness and the aging process.
Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 3pm, Monday and Tuesday at 7pm. Additional performance Saturday, October 18 at 2pm
