Doug Varone: The Scrapbook


Doug Varone and Dancers / Online / Stage

He’s been called “the Raymond Carver of dance,” and now he’s bringing his choreographic economy and humanity to film. This coming week sees the release of 10 shorts that Doug Varone made during lockdown. Much like a mini-series, the films will be streamed episodically over three nights—April 19, 21, and 23—remaining accessible until April 24 at seven-thirty P.M. E.T. Comprising a virtual New York season called The Scrapbook, the 10 are set to songs from the 1940s and 50s—classics such as “Fever,” “Time After Time,” “Mad About the Boy.” They range from light to dark, sunny to serious, minimal to madcap to metaphorical. All are gems. —L.J.
