Presented by SYLVANA CHRISTOPHER, five exciting young choreographers show five modern dance pieces:
"Getting to Know You"
The curious journey from complete strangers to trusted friends, inspired in part by the choreographer's cat, Mr. Peaches. Music by Mr. Jay's Sandbox Experience.
SYLVANA CHRISTOPHER & MAGGIE LOCKHART
"Then she fell"
Inspired by Icarus from Greek mythology, this collaboration turns an inquisitive eye on greed, trust, addiction, and the perils of flying too high. Dancers sweep and swirl to navigate a precarious relationship teetering from protective to prohibitive. Who leads who? Who is supposed to let go? Danced to original music by John Lee created for this work.
"The Last Time I Saw You: devotion chorus"
This work in progress solo features recorded and present tense audio and written text from the performer and past collaborators, as well as a soundtrack of emotionally charged ballad and pop. The performance simultaneously reveals and obscures the internal state of the participant as she reflects on a recent history of travel and dispossession.
Once endowed in light your purpose is clear. Rebuild, remodel, and rise:
the darkness is no more...the light has seized my vision.
A solo movement exploration of the desire to not be so attached to the things we want most. Music by Moderat.
