WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
CUNY Dance Initiative and John Jay College, in collaboration with Dušan Týnek Dance Theatre, present the world premiere of Anna at the Gerald Lynch Theater at John Jay College.
Anna is an evening-length contemporary dance-theater performance by choreographer Dušan Týnek inspired by Tolstoy's classic Russian novel Anna Karenina. An exploration of love and infidelity within the structures of stifling social mores, Anna sidesteps a conventional retelling of the novel, focusing instead on the essence of its characters and their situations.
