Filled with understated movement evocative of yet not imitative of Nijinsky's iconic faun, it floated contemplatively on the music of Debussy and the haunting Lieder of Gustave Mahler. "- LondondanceIn a one-time-only afternoon performance, Danspace Project and the French Institute Alliance Française's Crossing the Line 2009 festival co-present the U.S. premiere of Raimund Hoghe's L'Après-midi at St. Mark's Church.
