Cercle d’Amour, is Ms. Dorfman’s choreographic response to what she was once told: “laughter, too, can change the world.”
Cercle d’Amour explores the visual and movement metaphors evoked by a resonant and versatile prop, the hula-hoop.
Featuring music by Andy Tierstein, this ensemble work illuminates various aspects of relationships including play, competition, and fantasy. It has developed as a result of her closer examination of this seemingly frivolous item and the images it stirs: a circle that encompasses and embraces, the need to find balance, and humor.
Cercle d’Amour opens a dialogue on love that invites audiences to think, laugh, and enjoy.
