Heidi Latsky is a choreographer who “beautifully resets preconceptions about bodies and movement” (The New Yorker). Ideas about beauty are often shaped by convention, but Latsky defies convention by exposing the gorgeous virtuosity of unconventional dancers’ bodies in motion in an edgy, intimate way. With Triptych, comprised of two live works and a new dance created especially for film, she celebrates the essence of individual dancers, exults in the pure joy of movement in a piece created for herself, as an “older dancer” at 56, dancing in juxtaposition with five younger dancers, and reveals the hidden beauty of all bodies.
