Who needs fireworks when there’s Pinata?

-The New York Times

New York based choreographer Brian Brooks excited the Alfred audience again with minimalist but  physically rigorous choreography in his evening-length dance, Piñata; a collage of music, ranging from Señor Coconut to Ravel, from Cyndi Lauper to Cesaria Evora;  costumes that feature white lace, feather Mohawks, and flamenco-inspired, ruffled gowns; and by flooding  the stage with a full spectrum of color. Performed by the five members of the Brian Brooks Moving Company, Piñata began in a wash of white, complete with a bleached floor and layers of confetti that enveloped the stage. The work slowly morphed into a kaleidoscope of color through the intricate use of lighting, costumes, and masses of tissue confetti.
