ROBERT SHER-MACHHERNDL + CLEO PARKER ROBINSON
Join critically-acclaimed Viennese choreographer Robert Sher-Machherndl of Lemon Sponge Cake Contemporary Ballet and the legendary Cleo Parker Robinson for a lively conversation regarding Robert’s upcoming company commissioned work BLACK ANGELS. The new work comments on young African American’s through a foreign artist’s perspective.
This commission began just before Covid-19 hit, and is now being successfully rehearsed outside and on a virtual platform. Enjoy this insightful event with opportunity for audience members to participate, ask questions and interact.
“Mr. Sher-Machherndl’s language mixes snippets of textbook ballet with pedestrian movement and a more voluptuous, organic combination of phrasing and inscrutable gestures … he allows plenty of space and time to breathe.”
