Choreographer Lionel Popkin presents his recent work, the evening-length trio Miniature Fantasies, which premiered in November 2006 at Danspace Project at St. Mark's Church in New York City. Miniature Fantasies explodes the space with slide-projected images of 17th-century Indian miniature paintings, creating a virtual art gallery that illuminates the dancers in the fantastical perspective that is the cornerstone of the miniature tradition. Set to an original score by Popkin's longtime collaborator Andy Russ, the piece combines intertwined, delicate dancing and a sly human touch, with the images of isolated courtyards and wide-open terraces that permeate the paintings.
