The presentation of BASCULE marks the second New York City engagement of French choreographer David Wampach. Originally performed in France, 2005, BASCULE is re-mounted this fall with a new cast of American dancers: Michelle Boulé, Liz Santoro, and Bryan Campbell. The French word BASCULE means “scale” or “see-saw”, an apt title for a work whose staging dramatizes the back and forth flows between states of equilibrium and disequilibrium. The sound design, costumes, and set work together to intensify perpetually changing perspectives, while the three dancers–one male and two females– move in varying relationships to the score, visually creating a hypnotic and mesmerizing rhythmic interchange.
