Koresh Dance Company – Come Together
Eras collide, genres merge, and dancers move as one in Ronen Koresh’s 2013 anthology, Come Together. The four-man, six-woman company wordlessly explores the nature of human bonding to a soundtrack that ranges from modernist interpretations of ancient Jewish melodies to baroque works from 17th century English composer Henry Purcell.
The dances express interpersonal power dynamics of all sorts. In “Moments,” the entire company performs almost desperately for the attention of one seated woman, and in “Promises” a couple plays out a relationship that could be seen as abusive to music by Karl Mullen. Though much of the program consists of pas de deux, the stirring culmination calls on all ten dancers for a poetic interpretation of Ravel’s “Bolero.” Throughout, the dancers never lose track of each other. “Few modern dance companies possess such an impeccable sense of rhythm, each dancer a mirror image or clone of the other, while employing a wide range of classical and modern techniques,” the Birmingham News reported of the show.
