EFREN CORADO GARCIA | COLLATERAL BEAUTY

The work is inspired by moments of hidden bliss. Moments which are not generally memorable, like engagements or life changing decisions, but are often forgotten when looking back at a life once filled with love. My desire is to unfold a whimsical, charming and soft textured connection, that draws a line between love and a forgotten memory.

 

JUSTIN BASS | DOORS

This piece speaks on the next step in our own personal journey and how we live each day going through different avenues in life. Interacting with others who might change our path without even knowing it. Taking a risk and making a decision but also going through and holding the door for someone who could possibly impact your life.

 

LAUREN CURLEY | THE SUM OF NONE

Loosely based off of musical counterpoint, ‘The Sum of None’ explores manipulating different numerical combinations into movement phrases to fit within the score. Where one person sees a phrase of eighteen, another may see two sets of nine, three sets of six, six sets of three, nine sets of two, or any given combination of numbers. Much in the same way that people pick and choose the facts that best suit their interest, the dancers use the musical arrangements to create an atmosphere of highly organized chaos in which they flow in and out of synchronization with Glass’ soundscape as well as with one another.

 

DAN HIGGINS | DENIZEN

The roughly ten minute piece will feature Dan Higgins and Natalie Border. The work is organized inside a duet, two bodies moving seamlessly throughout the performance space and at times the two appear to be one; congealing, splitting and confronting one another as the piece unfolds.

 

LACIE SCOTT & JACLYN BROWN

A theatrical peek into the life of dancing mothers. Two dancers, two baby dancers. A rocking chair and lots of fun.

 

TYLER ORCUTT | BLUE SUN
