Karole Armitage Karole Armitage (ArmitageGoneDance.org)

Tony-nominated choreographer Karole Armitage has danced for George Balanchine and Merce Cunningham, worked for the celebrated film team of Merchant and Ivory, and choreographed music videos for Madonna and Michael Jackson. Once dubbed "the punk ballerina" for her postmodern edginess, she has been directing operas and ballets throughout Europe and recently choreographed the Broadway revival of “Hair.”

She joins us to talk about her musical passions and about Three Theories, a new work inspired by physics and written for the World Science Festival.

I enjoy listening to her. I wouldn't have thought of her being so enthusiastic at her level, but rather blasé. She seems totally young and refreshing, flexible in her body and her mind. I wish I could do something with her, would that be only talking, going for a walk, trying out some choreography and ideas. What an inspiration!
