Ever wondered what it's like to try a powerful psychedelic substance? I bet Alwin Nikolais's THE CRYSTAL AND THE SPHERE could give you an idea and possibly even put you in touch with your inner power animal. This dance piece by Rire-Woodbury company "involves an array of strange and humorous characters woven into a colorful Space Fantasy against vibrant light projections and magical black light images. With such delightful titles as "Waddle Birds," "Outer Space Clown," and "Chess Skaters,"
...Originally commissioned by the Kennedy Center for its Imagination Celebration, this dance was praised by Anna Kisselgoff of the New York Times noting, "The work was intended for children, but the playful abstractions that make up the Nikolais signature might, in this case, appeal even more to adults."
