Tom Gold’s Apparatus Hominus Blended Music, Art and Dance For a Magical Evening

Tom Gold’s Apparatus Hominus Blended Music, Art and Dance For a Magical Evening

Friday and Saturday night Tom Gold Dance presented  Apparatus Hominus at Florence Gould Hall at French Institute Alliance Francaise.

Tom Gold’s Apparatus Hominus, was originally created for and staged at TurnPark Art Space, a recreational and cultural center in the Berkshires  that features a site-specific sculpture  garden on the site of a former lime quarry. For the New York premier of this work Gold has expended the dances and increased the dancers from four to six.
Having covered Tom Gold Dance for the last several years, I am always amazed the innovated ideas that Gold brings to the stage. Both live ( Katherine Liccardo-violin, Joseph Riccardo-Piano) and recorded  music of Nico Muhly was  used for the different section of the piece. To add an extra dimension and a greater understanding for the piece, pictures of art were inserted into the program.
The dancers (Tiffany Lori, Mary Elizabeth Sell, Shoshana Rosenfield, Stephanie Williams, Barton Cowperthwaite, James She) embraced  the piece with passion and carried out the feelings the sculpture evoked..
