In If I Sing To You, dancers transcend the structure that is imposed by choreography to create self-regulated movement sequences with ever changing patterns, contexts, and combinations.

Spiraling Down draws inspiration from a variety of sources—newspaper photos, soccer moves, old movies, classic modern dance, ballet, Steve Martin, 19th-century actress Sarah Bernhardt, even Rainer’s own disinterred dances from the 1960s—which come together to create an eerie resonance that is both melancholic and unpredictable.
