DescriptionPeter Boal, a dancer with New York City Ballet, and Desmond Richardson, a former member of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, discuss works choreographed by Ulysses Dove for their respective companies. Boal, whose first exposure to Dove's choreography was Serious pleasures, created for American Ballet Theatre, talks about Red angels and Twilight, Dove's last work.
