-A Titillating Tragedy-
“This theater-dance hybrid, a lush rumination on temptation, infuses its subject with a heady blend of baroque elegance and contemporary snap. Mr. McCormick’s dances throughout are sensuous marvels, pungent but never overwrought…Mr. McCormick and his crew show great humor and a pronounced appreciation for body heat. The combination is deliriously rewarding. –The New York Times
“Although the story of Adam and Eve is as old as mankind, McCormick’s choreography is absolutely not. What it is: imaginative, visually striking, fresh, exciting, erotic, compelling, articulate, and brilliantly theatrical. Tired of superlatives yet? Too bad. Le Serpent Rouge is stunning…”–NY Theatre.com
“ The achievement of Company XIV in “Le Serpent Rouge” is to enlist music and dance in a process of rediscovery and realisation. Austin McCormick and his dancers, steeped in the discipline and traditions of art yet aware of its outrageous possibilities, transform a timeless tale into something new.”
Le Serpent Rouge is a dance/theatre work inspired by the story of Adam, Eve and that damn apple. Company XIV enacts the story of the fall of man in this Baroque Burlesque Extravaganza.
