BELLA DANNY GROSSMAN DANCE COMPANY
CHOREOGRAPHED BY DANNY GROSSMAN
Performed by: Michael Caldwell and Meredith Thompson.
Bella was inspired by the opera music of Puccini.
In 1977, with the Puccini music and a mutual love of Marc Chagall’s
paintings, Danny Grossman and Judy Jarvis set out to make a duet
for themselves on top of, under and around a table.
When Mary Kerr arrived to design the sets and costumes, she took her inspiration
from the Chagall images they had been using and created a beautiful painted
horse as the centerpiece for this charming love duet.
First premiered at Dusk Dances 2007.
