“Rich and spare at the same time, Tere O’Connor’s Long Run may be his best work yet.” — DanceLog.nyc

Living legend Tere O’Connor returns to the Dance Center with his new evening-length work, Long Run. Hailed as a “choreographer’s choreographer” (Chicago Tribune), O’Connor transforms space through visual drama and elaborate structure. Long Run pits the rigid geometry of the stage against the organic bodies crossing over it in a kinetic exploration. Physical extremes and relentless movement form what one critic called a “cascade of dance” that pulls the audience into the struggle to find a state of calm in an unpredictable and chaotic universe.
