“Devastatingly personal even as it transcends into the universal. Spectacular."_ -NY Arts_
“Bloom grows and expands into a kind of ecstasy…a rich, constantly changing work.” _-The Village Voice_
With music by Rufus Wainwright
Featuring the Paulist Choristers of California, children’s choir
p. The original music to Bloom, created by acclaimed singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright, was based on poems by Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson. Acclaimed choreographer Stephen Petronio has created a passionate, hopeful, sensual and celebratory dance to accompany Wainwright’s music, a powerful “modern landscape for the senses.”
With movement blossoming into a kind of ecstasy, Bloom conveys the openness and purity of youth and the bittersweet poignancy of transformation, complimented by Wainwright’s lush theatrical score featuring the sounds of a youth choir. The evening also features “Bud Suite,” set to a series of songs by Wainwright, and “The Rite Part,” based on Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring.”
