Above: Attila Joey Ciski and Lisa Iannacito McBride in Lydia Johnson's CHANGE OF HEART. Attila, who dances with Lar Lubovitch Dance Company, was making a guest appearance with Lydia Johnson Dance.
The final work on Lydia Johnson Dance's programme at Peridance was CHANGE OF HEART. Set to Bach's Three Part Inventions, this abstract work for large ensemble provided a celebratory end to the performance. CHANGE OF HEART alternates expansive group passages with intimate duets; the dancers are called upon for both virtuosity and expressive partnering. The smaller vignettes which ebb and flow into the larger scale of the work provide opportunities to savour the individual personalities of the dancers. Lydia's choreography, as ever, takes flight off the music.
