Jonah Bokaer's Anchises at Abrons Art Centerhttp://www.thirteen.org/sundayarts/blog/performance/anchises-intergenerational-respect/953/
Bokaer taps his roots as a Merce Cunningham dancer in Anchises, at Abrons Art Center through Nov 21. Setterfield and Harper are also Cunningham alum, and it is a treat to watch them move with the serenity and elegance that seems part of Merce’s legacy. Setterfield, with her magnetic presence, has never been less than riveting in the countless performances I’ve seen her in. She becomes a sort of shaman figure here, finally presiding over the neatly arrayed council like over the Last Supper. The enterprise is lit by Aaron Copp in brilliant schemes of ice blue and peach, evocative of Robert Wilson, for whom Bokaer has choreographed in recent years.
