Think of Fall for Dance as a collection of all-star trailers for the current season. Priced at a fraction of most uptown shows, each of the five programs contains four dances, many with live music and local premieres, by ensembles ranging from national behemoths like the San Francisco and Sarasota ballets, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and the Mark Morris Dance Group to visitors from China, England, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France, Canada, and Africa. On display are works by Ohad Naharin, William Forsythe, Frederick Ashton, Pontus Lidberg, Rennie Harris, and Russell Maliphant, local beacons Lucinda Childs, Trisha Brown, and Brian Brooks, and virtuoso performers from NYCB, ABT, and India launching new ventures.
Mondays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Starts: Oct. 8. Continues through Oct. 19, 2014
