Choreographer: Ulysses Dove
Music: Robert Ruggieri
 
Ulysses Dove, former member of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater created this explosive choreographic masterpiece which explores the battle of the sexes with original score by Robert Ruggieri. Episodes is a starkly passionate interpretation of the vulnerability, struggles, and desire to communicate involved in human relationships.  Set to a sparse, percussive score by Robert Ruggieri with the choreography contained along two diagonally-lit paths, private battles between the sexes play out for all to see onstage.  Moments of tension, explosive confrontation, and unresolved longing are drawn out as duos partner with complete abandon.
