Richard Alston will premiere The Seasons, described as a serene and limpid meditation on the cycle of a year in Nature, in Spring of 2018. The score by the inimitable John Cage has an extraordinary clarity with images of Quiescence (Winter), Creation (Spring), Preservation (Summer), and Destruction (Fall), which all derive from Indian philosophical thought. Alston, Artistic Director of The Place, is internationally recognized as one of the most inspiring and influential choreographers in dance and is known for his instinctive musicality.

GODOT cannot be compared to any other theater work, because its purpose is so different. Two dilapidated bums fill their days as painlessly as they can. They wait for Godot, a personage who will explain their interminable insignificance, or put an end to it. They are resourceful, with quarrels and their dependence on each other, as children are. They pass the time ‘which would have passed anyway.’ A brutal man of means comes by, leading a weakling slave who does his bidding like a mechanical doll. Later on he comes back, blind, and his slave is mute, but the relationship is unchanged. Every day a child comes from the unknown Godot, and evasively puts the big arrival off until tomorrow…It is a tragic view. Yet, in performance, most of it is brilliant, bitter comedy…It is a portrait of the dogged resilience of a man’s spirit in the face of little hope.
