Three choreographers who have long admired ballet dancer and teacher Bonnie Mathis present works that illustrate—with intelligence, depth of feeling, and variety of style—the power of Mathis’ influence and inspiration. Penelope Freeh’s “Simple Folk” draws from Mathis’ now-iconic performances of Antony Tudor’s psychological ballets. Helen Hatch collaborates once again with Seth Conover of Poolboy for “The Machine Stops,” based on E.M. Forster’s sci-fi story. Sally Rousse’s “Reckoning Agents” delves into the gestural movements and furtiveness of spying, with a sound score that references several Tudor ballets.
