Motivated by the photography of Roy Volkmann, Elisa Monte has created the "Volkmann Suite," premiered recently in the company's spring season at the Joyce. Set to music by Michael Nyman, the choreography seemed to move from one balancing act to another. The three dancers--Nadine Mose, Massimo Pacilli, and Marden Ramos--realized one enticing image after another, much as a circus acrobat might prepare, execute, and finish tricks.

Ms. Monte's new ''Volkmann Suite,'' a clever if static piece inspired by the images of Roy Volkmann, the troupe's photographer, is concerned with shapes made physical. Mr. Brown's ''Sudden Experience,'' breathtakingly performed by Emmanuele Phuon, and ''Kaamos,'' an occasionally dazzling premiere, see energy as an emotional conduit.

As a tie-in with the Old Master Nude Paintings at The Clark this season, we are exhibiting a Contemporary View of Nudes in Paintings and Prints by three Greater Berkshire Regional Artists: Jim Peters, Roy Volkmann and Nadine Robbins.
