Ways to Behold and Sentry

One of the most literate, thoughtful choreographers in town, Stuart Pimsler presents a double bill of protest art late in the month. Ways to Behold, a world premiere with accompaniment by spoken-word artist Tiyo Siyolo, juxtaposes the realities of a U.S.-initiated—yet somehow invisible—war overseas with the comforts of daily life on our own shores. Sentry is a reprise from the Reagan era; it was created during Pimsler’s days in New York City, when he was active with Artists Against Nuclear Madness. Set to a medley of ’60s protest songs, the piece is based in part on military orders that one of Pimsler’s students smuggled out of the Air Force Academy.
