Rehearsals are now beginning on a revival of Woman Sleeping from 1981, and will be co-ordinated with a new work Baggage, about Death and how we continue to connect with those we have been close to that becomes additional 'baggage' in a positive way. Besides the dance aspect of the work, we will ask people to contribute images and words using Flickr and the Internet about someone (person or animal) that they have lost. Our next performance is Dance At the Stone House, a site-specific work in November that is now in its fourth year.
Louise Reichlin & Dancers burst into the public eye in 1979 with their first performance at the Anson Ford Theatre when "Reichlin created a sensation with "The Tennis Dances" (Dance News). Over the years she has continued to examine our society from its most primitive nature to the emergence of the information age with "The E-mail Dances" in 1996. Through multiple performances for the 23rd Olympiad, a summer series at the LA Zoo, touring the US and Mexico with "Dream Scapes" and "The Patchwork Girl of Oz," Reichlin has consistently created "probing and provocative" works. (Dance Magazine) Louise Reichlin & Dancers also works in partnership with many schools in the LA area providing performances, staff development training for teachers and residency workshops with children. The newest work is "The Better to Bite You With" which was recently performed at the Edye Second Space, the WAA Dance Showcase, and the TriArt Festival. Reichlin founded the company, a performing unit of Los Angeles Choreographers & Dancers in 1979.
Other works from the repertory include The Patchwork Girl of Oz and The E-Mail Dances (dance/multimedia), Urban and Tribal Dances, and Gimbdu Dance Suite. See company videos for choreography and style. See reviews for critics and press excerpts.
