NEW YORK, NY April 20, 2016 – Luke Muscat, Edmonton born and raised, will take the stage as a soloist in the premier of Of Heart and Stone, by Captiveflow Dance, at The Hudson Guild Theater from May 26-28th.
Dancer Luke Muscat is a founding member of Captiveflow Dance, a New York City theatrical contemporary dance company. He studied at the prestigious Alvin Ailey School on scholarship, where he performed alongside the acclaimed Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater for audiences of over 2, 000 people.
Luke has performed internationally in Canada and America, and has made appearances in the Karikatura music video “Eyes Wide Open” featured in the Wall Street Journal.
Resembling his cultural upbringing, Luke associates his hard work ethic and perseverance with his instilled Jewish heritage. Much like the people of the Edmonton Jewish Community, Luke has a compassionate heart and is a leader in his society.
He shares his passion for the arts with the next generation as a professional dance educator in leading New York City dance conservatories (including The Ailey School, The School at The Mark Morris Dance Group, and the School at Steps on Broadway) and in New York City private, public and special needs schools.
The evening’s program, Duality, features the two full length ballets On the Tip of My Tongue and Of Heart and Stone.
Of Heart and Stone is a narrative piece based off the classic Medusa Myth: a woman turned hideous for her slight against a fickle and vengeful G-d (Portrayed by Luke Muscat). Each character navigates a tangled web of romantic sins in pursuit of their own idea of “perfect love” until it constricts them all irrevocably. How does the heart grow when it reaches rock bottom?
Performances begin on Thursday May 26th at 8 pm and run until Saturday May 28th, including a 2 pm Saturday matinee at the charming Hudson Guild Theater in New York City. Performances are made possibly by The Field Sponsorship and Producer Ryan Savoca. Admission is $25 and can be purchased online at Eventbrite.com and at the door.
