Arcane Collective Cold Dream Colour at Guggenheim

Arcane Collective Cold Dream Colour at Guggenheim

In homage to Ireland’s foremost 20th-century painter, Louis le Brocquy, Arcane Collective brings the canvas to the stage in a mesmerizing celebration that transforms the artist’s imagery into music and dance.

Irish broadcaster John Kelly moderates a discussion with director and choreographer Morleigh Steinberg, choreographer Oguri, and composers Paul Chavez and The Edge of U2. The work is concerned less with animating figures and physical shapes in le Brocquy’s mysterious paintings than it is with finding the meanings and energy within them.

With mesmerizing concentration and urgent dexterity the dance hints at a poetic narrative with an intensely seductive and gestural movement style.  The distinctive guitar techniques of The Edge set a compelling yet subtly textured tone for the work.  The spirit of the paintings come to life as the company performs excerpts from their latest production Cold Dream Colour.
