Founded in 1994, RIOULT Dance NY fast became an established name in modern dance with a reputation for presenting the sensual, articulate, and exquisitely musical works of Pascal Rioult. The New  York City-­‐based dance company presents an annual New York season, tours internationally, conducts extensive in-­‐school arts education  and  community  outreach  programs,  and  offers  dance  training  to  the  public  through  classes,
workshops, and intensives.

WOMEN  ON  THE  EDGE…Unsung  Heroines  of  the  Trojan  War is  a  trilogy  of  dances  inspired  by  Euripides’ tragic  heroines  Iphigenia,  Helen  of  Troy,  and  Cassandra.  Pascal  Rioult’s  interpretations  of  these  timeless stories  highlight  not  only grace,  strength,  and  resilience  of  women  in  society  but  also  the  futility  and immorality   of   war.   The   program   includes Iphigenia, On   Distant   Shores,   and   Cassandra’s Curse   set   to commissioned   music   by   contemporary   American   composers Michael   Torke, Aaron   Kernis,   and Richard
Danielpour respectively.

"“The  precision  and  the  speed,  to  which  we  are  witness,  are the  results  of  a  troupe  in  perfect  harmony.”  —    Marisa  Luisa Buzzi, Danza&Danza, Italy

"“Perhaps the most adept and courageous choreographer in mainstream modern dance today…”     — Lisa Jo Sagolla, Backstage
