Description Doug Varone and Dancers return to BAM with in the shelter of the fold / epilogue, an evening length work of six interconnected vignettes that considers and questions faith. Varone and his 13-member ensemble contemplate our private and public relationships to faith and belief in an intricately-woven tapestry of sound, shape, momentum, and stillness. The piece features original music by composers Lesley Flanigan, Julia Wolfe, David Lang, Raz Mesinai, and Kevin Keller—performed live by Flanigan, PUBLIQuartet, and the Bang on a Can All-Stars.
