An evening of Sokolow gems
Dakshina/Daniel Phoenix Singh Dance Company returns to Dance Place with a full evening of Anna Sokolow favorites including “Frida,” “September Sonnet,” and “Magritte Magritte”. Washington Posts‘ Sarah Kaufman lauds Lorry May’s restaging of the Sokolow classics on Dakshina and writes:

“Yet Sokolow isn’t so surreal after all. If Magritte’s paintings take us away from reality, Sokolow’s treatment of them returns us to this world. It can’t help but do so. We’re watching human beings. In Sokolow’s hands — as interpreted by May and Singh’s strong cast — they speak to the outsider in all of us.”

Both Frida and Magritte are inspired by the paintings of these larger than life painters who were ahead of their times in both style and commentary. Perhaps Sokolow saw kindred spirits in these fellow artists when she adapted their paintings and brought them to life.
