About The Road Awaits Us

“It’s hard to do justice to the freewheeling brilliance of Big Dance Theater.” — The New York Times

OBIE & Bessie award-winning company, Big Dance Theater brings two North American premieres and a beloved solo to the NYU Skirball stage.


Based loosely on an absurdist play by Ionesco, in this North American premiere, Annie-B Parson stages a birthday party for a company of esteemed dance elders, including Bebe Miller, Meg Harper, Keith Sabado, Sheryl Sutton, George Faison, Betsy Gregory, Brian Bertscher, and Black-Eyed Susan. This piece was originally created for Sadler’s Wells Elixir Co.


Annie-B Parson takes on ballet with her own choreographic voice. Drawing from her experience of watching and re-watching Balanchine’s Agon as well as the novel The Complete Ballet by John Haskell, she creates a duet from the imagery, the fundamental actions, the objects, and the narratives of ballet traditions.


Back by popular demand, this solo features Paul Lazar speaking a series of one-minute lectures by John Cage from his 1963 score “Indeterminacy,” while simultaneously performing a complex choreographic score by Annie-B Parson.
