— CSU Dance presents three works by the late Salvatore Aiello. With an illustrious performance career spanning the 60s and 70s with dance companies such as Joffrey Ballet, Royal Winnipeg Ballet, and Hamburg Ballet, Aiello went on to become artistic director of North Carolina Dance Theatre until his untimely death in 1995. During his tenure, he created dozens of works, some of which remain available today for performance or reconstruction. “Sal’s work is timeless. It provides an ideal framework within which dancers can explore and develop unique artistic voices,” says assistant professor Madeline Harvey.
Aiello’s Senza Freta, The Waiting Room, and Snow Scene, staged by Jerri Kumery, Salvatore Aiello Trust Curator and Repetiteur, in collaboration with CSU faculty artists Madeline and Matthew Harvey, make their Colorado debut at the concert. Madeline and Matthew also premiere Delia Neil’s original pas de deux, a riveting portrayal of Shakespeare’s Othello. Select students showcase their choreographic innovations and choreography by Emily Morgan, CSU’s new director of dance, is gracing the stage for the first time.
