This summer, dancer Maria Caruso has come to New York to help usher in the return of in-performances in, not one, but two new productions Off-Broadway.
M-Train Productions, the commercial arm of the Pittsburgh-based dance organization Bodiography, which is presenting two works at different venues in Midtown.
Refreshed and inspired by the work of Martha Graham, Maria Angelica Caruso discovers potential in movement. Gliding across the floor with a gloriously long fabric wrap, she ignites the audienceâ€™s imagination, asking them to recall early Graham performance.
Caruso appears in her solo show "Metamorphosis" on Thursdays and Fridays through July 30 at the Actors' Temple, a synagogue-turned-theater in New York City's Hell's Kitchen neighborhood.
A thrilling celebration of the globe-trotting Caruso and company, as well as insight into the future of Bodiography (and to an extent The Performing Arts Department at La Roche University), Metamorphosis was a triumph.
Caruso world-premiered her new, 50-minute contemporary dance solo Metamorphosis at the Karmiel Dance Festival, Israel's largest dance celebration.
