Bring on the fall with a variety of dance performances. At NYLA, South African choreographer Robyn Orlin presents Albert Ibokwe Khoza in “And so you see…our honourable blue sky and ever enduring sun…can only be consumed slice by slice” Sept. 22-24. The solo, a New York premiere, “…was created in response to South Africa’s recent celebration of 20 years of freedom and contains Orlin’s trademark mix of forms, expressions and genre. Orlin describes the performance as “…an ironical playful body, caught between sin, transformation, decay and brilliance, using the ‘seven deadly sins,’ on a journey through a ‘requiem to humanity’ with the third world still on stage and the first world paying to be part of the show…” according to the release.  For more information visit https://newyorklivearts.org/event/and-so-you-see/
