New choreography created by legendary choreographer Yvonne Rainer for Weld Company.

Again? What now? is an amalgam of “old” dance excerpts and more recent ideas, including spoken texts, music, and movement configurations. You might call the piece “Yvonne Rainers Best Bits”. The actual title can also be read as a cry of desperation and protest in response to the fraught state of the world, and more specifically, the current calamitous social and political situation in the United States.

In a career-long concern with integrating and separating the influences of dance history and current events, Rainer’s work — from dance to film and back to choreography — reflects these sometimes irreconcilable poles of the aesthetic and the social. Ever hopeful, she begins again.

Weld Company that turns five years 2018, collects dance artists with different backgrounds and age range of 24-64 years to challenge the choreographic formats and dance society as an idea.
