Alwin Nikolais Centennial 

American choreographer Alwin Nikolais was an innovator of dance, creating multimedia spectacles incorporating special effects, props, costumes and masks. He pioneered creative movement radically distant from classic techniques well before contemporary dance companies like Pilobolus and MOMIX. On the centennial of his birth (he died in 1993), the Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company presents several pieces spanning his five-decade career, including Crucible (1985), Liturgies (1985), Temple (1974), Water Studies (1964) and Tensile Involvement (1955). Tickets $40. — Will Coviello
