ALWIN NIKOLAIS 2010: A CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION

2010 marks the centennial of the birth of the visionary choreographer Alwin Nikolais (1910-1993). To celebrate his work and legacy, Henry Street Settlement is mounting this once-in-a-lifetime weekend (April 30-May 2) of reunions and re-creations.

During his tenure as the Artistic Director of the Henry Street Playhouse (1948-69), 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.
