To My Arms/Restore is a new two-part work embodying Doug Varone’s decades-long choreographic fascination with the profoundly emotional and the immensely physical. Set to a suite of arias by G. F. Handel, To My Arms builds a landscape of love and loss, evoking a strange otherworld of intimacy. In stark contrast, Restore feels as if it has been ripped out of today’s front pages, bringing a message of community, defiance, and resilience in a world recoiling and rebounding. Driven by the 21st-century sound of Nico Bentley’s Handel Remixed, the score fuses Handel’s 18th-century choral score Dixit Dominus with beats more commonly heard in clubs around the globe.

“If this work and these dancers can’t move you, I don’t know what would.”
