Description Vertigo is the word to describe this company of eight dancers whose breathtaking choreographic experiments have the giddy force of a runaway roller coaster. In their Next Wave debut they present two New York premieres: Chagall, an intoxicating stunner that joyously brings to life the lovers that fill Marc Chagall's exuberant canvasses; and Don Quichotte, a fevered examination of Spanish movement motifs in which dancers twist and crash off headless, knobby-kneed steeds and chase each other at breakneck speed, leaping on and off fast-moving forms with brutal abandon.
