Choreographer Zvi Gotheiner’s work can go from the deeply personal (without seeming too self-centered) to humorous in a matter of seconds. In his latest spring show with his 10-member company Zvidance, the Israeli expat pays homage to his mentor, Gertrude Haus (1901–1977), in the return of 2007’s Gertrude (in which his dancers share passages of her wisdom and teachings)—and then, for something lighter, switches over to the notion of how we gussy ourselves up to get a date in the premiere of Personals. It should be a fun, thought-provoking program that blends spoken word and dance under the light of video projections, with music by Nick Cave, Tuxedomoon, Robert Schumann, and Scott Killian.
Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: April 23. Continues through April 26, 2008
