Dance Kaleidoscope will present its second Martha Graham masterpiece, “Acts of Light,” in the show D’Klassical is D’Kool, Feb. 15-18 at the Indiana Repertory Theatre.
Artistic Director David Hochoy was a student of Martha Graham and former soloist and rehearsal director for her company. Hochoy was also a member of the original cast of “Acts of Light,” which premiered in 1981 at the Kennedy Center, and is set to the music of Danish composer Carl Nielsen.
The program will also present classical favorites from Puccini and Handel, both choreographed by Hochoy. Puccini’s love duet from Madama Butterfly will be portrayed by different pairs of dancers who represent different aspects of love and passion. “Water Music,” which premiered in 2003, features a new movement set to Handel’s “Eternal Source of Light Divine” from “Birthday Ode for Queen Anne.”
