In this celebratory “live dance documentary”, FMT Co-Director Eric Dunlap joins dance legends Murray Louis, Phyllis Lamhut and Beverly Blossom join with over 25 other choreographers, dancers, teachers, and students onstage to honor Nikolais’ life and enduring influence.
Nikolais pushed beyond the boundaries of contemporary dance to create hallucinogenic wonders of movement, lighting, sound, and setting. A pioneer of multimedia technology, Nikolais’ prolific imagination shaped 20th-century performance and continues to inspire and astound artists and audiences today.
The 30 performers in this Nikolais version of From the Horse’s Mouth are outstanding dancers and choreographers. Each one tells their personal story about this reknown choreographer, and perform movement from his work.
