Two weeks from today marks the most romantic night of the year, and what better way to spend time with your valentine than at an intimate dance performance!

In 1992, The New York Times dance critic Jennifer Dunning wrote, “If Pascal Rioult keeps on creating the kinds of dances he has been choreographing with such authority for a mere three years, he may have to leave his job as a soloist with the Martha Graham Dance Company and become a full-time choreographer.” He did just that, and now returns with his own company of dancers to the historic 92nd Street Y where he originally created one of his most enduring works, Wien (1995).

As a preview of RIOULT Dance NY's upcoming NY Season in June, the program will pay homage to choreographer Pascal Rioult's mentors and dance legends, Martha Graham and May O'Donnell. Excerpts of Graham's El Penitente (1940) and O'Donnell's Suspension (1943) will be presented, performed by RIOULT dancers who have had the unique experience of learning the works under the guidance of former Graham and O'Donnell dancers - including Pascal Rioult and his wife Joyce Herring. In addition, the program will feature excerpts of Pascal Rioult's Views of the Fleeting World (2008) and present his powerful Wien (1995) in its entirety.

Tickets are only $20 and can be easily purchased here. Each night Pascal Rioult will give a post-performance talk. In addition, following the Valentine's Day Feb. 14 performance, there will be a reception open to all ticket holders.
