A joyful dance filled with underlying emotional content, Celestial Tides captivated audiences at its premiere at The Joyce Theater in 2011.
"Superb. Rioult showed his mastery of movement.the calm expressive beauty of the central quartet lingered in the mind. "
- Philip Gardner of Oberon's Grove
Celestial Tides was developed while in residence at the Kaatsbaan International Dance Center supported, in part, with a New York State Residency grant from the New York State Council on the Arts, and through a space grant with LaGuardia Performing Arts Center's lab program. Additional support was provided by the National Endowment for the Arts and The Kenneth French Fund for New Works.
