RDT is proud to honor the artistic legacy of Bill Evans this fall with our opening concert, QUADRUPLE BILL, September 29-October 1.
Bill Evans was a dancer with RDT from 1967 through 1974 and created 20 works for RDT. He enjoys an ongoing relationship with the company as a teacher, choreographer, and guest performer and serves on the RDT national advisory board.
Since 1974, Bill has become an internationally-known choreographer, performer, teacher, administrator, writer, and movement analyst. Almost 300 of Evans’ works have been performed by professional and pre-professional ballet, modern dance, and tap companies, including Bill Evans Dance Company, Ballet West, Ririe-Woodbury, Ruth Page Chicago Ballet, Pacific Northwest Ballet, North Carolina Dance Theater, American Ballet Theatre at Jacob’s Pillow, Winnipeg’s Contemporary Dancers, Chicago Tap Theatre, CODACO of Puebla Mexico, and many others.
In QUADRUPLE BILL, RDT will pay tribute to Evans’s immense legacy. His love of American dance and music will take the audience on a joyous artistic journey steeped in the landscapes, the stories, and the culture of the West. The concert features a wide range of his choreography created between 1973 and 2017.
