Variation N.D.

The work will premiere on May 3, 2006 at the "Acropol" Theatre of the Greek National Opera in Athens.

"Variation N.D." is a re-imagined adaptation of the choreography "Continuous Painting," first presented by Analysis Dance Company on February 9, 1998 at the Sylvia and Danny Kaye Playhouse in New York.

With new movement and selections from the work of Nassos Daphnis, the choreography includes the following parts: "Black and Yellow on White," "Red Valse," "White Line," "Red and Blue on Yellow, White and Black," "Dis Integration," "Valse Triste," and "Circles and the Last Valse".

The choreographic synthesis conjoins movement to paintings projected on stage and gives expression through dance to eleven Ideas-Paintings that serve as a structural element of the architecture of the stage.

"Variation N.D." is danced to music by Dmitri Shostakovich, Serge Prokofiev, Alexander Glazounov, Giulio Caccini, Colin McPhee, and Steve Reich.
