Apollon at NYU Skirball


22 february 2020 until 23 february 2020

by: NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts

In Apollon, the renegade choreographer Florentina Holzinger combines fin de siècle freak shows with 1960s live art, offering a new perspective on the rupture between high art and entertainment culture. Through this hilarious and furious destruction of a classical narrative, Holzinger addresses the myth of the “perfect woman,” the artist herself. Five women tackle the neoliberalist cult of the body, jumping between the aesthetics of an occult fitness-studio, and a cyborg-bullfight, with a hint of Balanchine’s neoclassical ballet quartet Apollon.

Performances of Apollon will take place on February 22 & 23 at 7:30pm. Running time is 1 hour and 10 minutes. For more information, visit NYU Skirball's event page.
