In What the Flock?, choreographer Valerie Komkov Hill explores the behavior associated with sheep, the mentality of the flock vs. the need to express one’s individuality, as well as the physical traits often observed in...........oh who are we kidding?!! It's all about sight gags and cheap laughs at the dancers' expense. Ewe can just think of it as a baaa--d dream'.
destination here - Inspired by real-life events, destination here, deals with midlife, marriage and motherhood. Choreographer Nicole Wesley creates an introspective look at life at 40 with reflections of pleasure, pain and regret.
LNO, choreographed by Kyla Olson, tells the story of five ladies going out on the town. You know these women - the mean girl, the teasing flirt, the quirky dancer, the sloppy drunk, and the shy, designated-driving wallflower. Using pop music as the score, Olson blends jazz, hip-hop, modern, and signature club dances to illustrate a fun night of shenanigans.
A Bull in a China Shop/The Elephant in the Room – Choreographer Ali Duffy explores social behavior and the performances inherent in day-to-day life in this quartet. Inspired by the vaudevillian physicality of Buster Keaton and the wacky charm of Lucille Ball, three distinct vignettes poke fun at the laughable ways women throughout history have been represented in performance.
Boogie Nightmares- Choreographer Sarah Mondle presents a look into the dreaming self, complete with folly and fantasy. The dance is a journey through a trio of dreams following one dreamer. Exploring the idea that dreams tie all human kind together, the dreamer experiences not only flights of fancy but also of fear.
M' ungry - Audience members will squirm with nervous laughter as they witness the dead dancing in this duet by Rachel Ure. Though charmed by playful costuming, unexpected accompaniment, and quirky choreography, spectators will soon realize that they are the targets of an eerie appetite.
Maximum Security: A Cautionary Tale a quartet by Genevieve Durham DeCesaro fuses original narrative with both mimetic and abstract movement to create a facetious depiction of the ways in which women continue to be culturally stereotyped. No holds are barred as the performers confront themes of feminism, homosexuality, domesticity, and drug use in outrageous and hilarious solos, duets, and ensembles.
Playground Rules-Choreographer Sarah Mondle presents a fun, light-hearted dance that emphasizes friendship in its various stages. From childhood innocents to grown up goofballs, some connections are always young at heart.
