Combining two intense solos delivered by two stellar performers, Ruben Sanchez and Annie Hanauer, Variation(s) brings about an extremely musical dance verging on trance.

The piece, which premiered in 2019, fits into a sparse configuration, with no set, focusing attention on the live dancing and allowing the audience to get a better sense of all the variations. It consists of two solos of equal duration performed by two longtime collaborators of the choreographer. First on stage is Ruben Sanchez, who moves around with extreme nimbleness on a large rectangular board sitting on the floor. The wind-soled giant creates a very percussive organic score, stomping his agile feet and pounding his body with his hands. Next is Annie Hanauer. Meshing with the music throughout, dancing through the light, seemingly barely touching the floor, hers is a fluttering and sparkling dance, peppered with moments of epiphany both fluid and expressive. Emotion-packed, pushing toward trance, the ensemble is absolutely thrilling.
