Montage. Firebird excerpt.
Igor Stravinsky, L'Oiseau de Feu
Length: 3 minutes
Costume: Specially designed unitard with one full sleeve attached
Notation: 1982, good quality, score unchecked
A hauntingly beautiful abstract depiction of the mythical firebird.
Requires a technically strong, musical female modern dancer who can
express the birdlike qualities in the choreography, convey an alluring
and mysterious mood and hold the audience captive. Notated when Murray
Louis created the movement for women in his company.
Sebastian Bach: Prelude and Fugue in D Minor*
Length: 9 minutes

A quirky male solo in three parts which Louis originally created for
himself. Begins with many changes in arabesque position with stillness
between, continuing with a bouncy and vital section of isolated body
movements, winding down suddenly to the initial stillness. A proficient
interpreter of the Louis style is essential.
