Led by choreographers/co-artistic directors Ted Thomas and
Frances Ortiz, the Thomas/Ortiz Dance Company showcases an eclectic collage
of the company’s favored pieces during a two-night series at Manhattan’s Ailey
Citigroup Theater. Renowned for its “urban athleticism and Latin sensuality,”
Thomas/Ortiz Dance examines socially relevant themes through reflective and
emotional choreography and heightened musical sensibilities. The program’s
seven modern works, all heralding both the female and male bodies as their
core, range from ebullient and rejoicing to sexually-charged and political:
Frayed Ends (2007), And (2001), Scarred (2007), Reflections (2002), Un-Damely
(2003), Dynamite Walls (2007), and Marked in a Region of No Origin (1997).
