Description: A diptych of new works by up and coming French dancer-choreographer Maud Le Pladec, Ominous Funk & Dystopia and Democracy are the first two parts of a three-part series titled To Bang on a Can. The work explores the relationship between sound and gesture using atonality and breaks in form, and is performed to the live music of David Lang and Julia Wolfe, two founders of the music group "Bang on a Can". This work, along with Alain Buffard's, will be part of the month-long, multi-venue French-American Dance Festival taking place throughout the month of May 2014 in New York.
