This time, it's called 3ex - 'expression, explosion and ecstasy' - and consists of three separate choreographed works by two of the most wanted modern dance choreographers on international stages, Americans Daniel Ezralow and Bill Young.
The first BDT performances is 'Lady Lost Found,' a dance based on motifs from English and Scottish folk melodies which premiered three years ago in Chicago (choreographed by Daniel Ezralow). This will be followed by 'Bound To,' which is danced to songs by Cole Porter, Tom Waits, Sinead O'Connor and others (choreographed by Bill Young). The title of the third performance will be announced to the audience at the show; the dance is based on the music of Balkan conductor Goran Bregovic, and is choreographed by Daniel Ezralow.
