Performances on
May 24th and May 31st

Salvatore Capezio Theater

"'Sally meets Stu' is not really about a Sally and a Stu, they are only there to show and tell us something about us. I love opening questions for discussion without using even one word - I believe that while meeting Sally and Stu, we agree with missing the answers - I offer us to lean back and enjoy the unpredictable." - Agami

With a cast of 9 dancers Agami brings to the stage a unique full evening piece. The combination between live narration, a tasteful sound track and the original vocabulary by Agami, completes a rich entertaining experience for the audience.

New York Season 2012  | Open: 06/23/12 Close: 06/24/12
LJD's New York Season 2012. Four works including two premieres set to the music of Philip Glass, Osvaldo Golijov and J.S. Bach's Three Part Inventions. Last year's dramatic and intense Summer House and the angular and combative Falling Out from 2006 complete the program. Guest Artists include Attila Joey Csiki and Reed Laplau both of Lar Lubovitch Dance Comapny and Max van der Sterre, formerly with New York City Ballet. Founded in 1999, Lydia Johnson Dance has been consistently praised for its distinctive choreography, which uses components of ballet woven seamlessly into a contemporary dance vocabulary. The Company has received positive critical acclaim from The New York Times, The New Yorker and Backstage Magazine for its annual New York Season. LJD is honored to be highlighted frequently in Philip Gardner's Oberon's Grove blog in a series titled “The Creative Process”. LJD has performed recently at both Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival and the Downtown Dance Festival. Ms. Johnson is a Guest Artist faculty member at the Peridance Capezio Center in New York where LJD presents Repertory Workshops for advanced and professional dancers. Capturing a sense of the depth and spirit of the human struggle, Ms. Johnson’s evocative work is noted for an underlying sense of drama, which resonates through the predominantly abstract qualities of her choreography. Music is a powerful component of the Lydia Johnson Dance experience and selections range from contemporary masters such as Osvaldo Golijov, Philip Glass, Henryk Gorecki, to jazz by Oscar Peterson, Thelonious Monk and Albert Ammons.
