We caught up with Diane Arvanites & Tommy Neblett, the co-artistic directors of Prometheus Dance (MCC choreography fellows) to find out what’s doing with this dynamic artistic duo.
What are you excited about these days?
Tommy – Learning to horseback ride.
Diane – School’s out, our garden and gyrokinesis.
What artist do you most admire but work nothing like?
Tommy – Pina Bausch
Diane – Wim Vandekeybus
Have you ever revised your work on the spot, during a performance (intentionally, I mean)?
Diane – It depends on the evolution of the piece.
The unauthorized biography of your life is titled:
Tommy – He Did It His Way
Tommy – Studying to become a Certified Dog Trainer.
Diane – Learning to fence.
Tomorrow and Saturday nights Prometheus Dance has a world premiere of WARP at the ICA (music composed by John Kusiak and music by Arvo Part). They will also be performing Tabula Rasa. Run to the ICA to see their work. Get to the performance early, and you will have an added bonus of a pre-performance talk by dance critic Debra Cash. Tickets available at the ICA and ArtsBoston.
In the meantime, see an excerpt from Devil’s Wedding by Prometheus Dance.
