A Multitide of Sins
by Farrell Dyde
“ Dyde is able to haul out a vast knowledge of music, dance, modern art and drama to make them coalesce
into fast-paced, often witty, organic theater.” — On Stage Magazine
The Match Houston, TX
8 PM March 16, 2018 One Night Only
Farrell Dyde Dance Theatre and Novodada present Farrell Dyde in A Multitude of Sins for one night only: March 16, 2018
at 8 PM at Midtown Arts & Theatre Center Houston (Match), 3400 Main Street in Houston, Texas.
A Multitude of Sins comprises three new related dance theatre works created and performed by artistic director Farrell Dyde. The three works are:
1. Dream set to a tape collage arranged by Farrell Dyde utilizing music by Simon Jeffes, Eric Satie and Frederick Chopin. Dream explores deep seated memories from
childhood that emerge from the unconscious mind in dreams and fantasies.
2. Girl set to a tape collage arranged by Farrell Dyde with music by John Lennon and Paul McCartney. In Girl
we travel back in time to look at parallels that existed then with what is happening today. The songs selected are all from the album Rubber Soul which was
released in December of 1965 at a time when the turmoil at home and the war in Vietnam were gaining momentum. Here we follow one man – perhaps recollecting this
time – when love and loss were at a premium.
3. Precipice uses music by Andrew Poppy in a dramatic, minimalist score. Here the theme
of “approach and withdrawal” is explored through pure movement. As Don Draper would say: “Our greatest fears lie in apprehension.”
Farrell Dyde is an American choreographer, dancer and actor who has created over 100
original modern and post modern movement theater works of varying dimension and approach and that cover a broad spectrum of both narrative and non-narrative for his own
company and many other companies and institutions. An original member of the CAM
(Contemporary Arts Museum) choreographers in Houston, he created two world premiere ballets for Houston Ballet
(1983 & 1985).
“Farrell Dyde is a witty, articulate dancer/choreographer whose inventiveness and clarity of thought remind me of Merce Cunningham….Dyde is a perfect exemplar
of modern dance, of disciplined investigation into new ways of making dance.”-- Nancy Kauffman, Austin American Statesman
