Doug Varone & Dancers

In ReComposed (2015), co-commissioned by ADF and the Nasher Museum, choreographer Doug Varone created a dance inspired by American abstract artist Joan Mitchell’s pastel drawings. Mitchell used gestural, sometimes violent brushwork, and described her paintings as “an organism that turns in space.” Before the performances at DPACVarone and his dancers held a series of open company rehearsals at the Nasher Museum in an empty gallery. This was the third such partnership between the Nasher Museum and ADF.
