VOLKMANN SUITE was inspired by the photos of the renowned photographer Roy Volkmann who portrays the company’s dancers in beautiful, sensual images.  The creative process of the dance was inspired by the still lives of Volkmann, and his images were given life through the movement.  A “Rodinesque” ode to dance.
