Moving Performances

On the Web site of Doug Varone and Dancers, the word "kinetic" comes up more than once. Kinetic. As in, the energy or force of motion when relating to material bodies. When applied to current choreography, basically, it just means "you need to see this company perform, like, now." Their movements—whether exaggerated or restrained—are some of the most deliberate and breathtaking you'll find in dance today. Pure athleticism in tandem with beautiful creativity. Varone and Dancers began with performances at PS 122 in New York in 1986 and are now one of the most revered dance companies in the contemporary genre. TITAS brings them to McFarlin Auditorium, 6405 Boaz Lane, 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are an affordable $14 to $59. Call 800-462-7980 or visit
Fri., Nov. 2, 8 p.m.; Sat., Nov. 3, 8 p.m., 2007
