Dancer’s Group and CounterPULSE present 2nd Sundays, an open discourse
project in which artists share works in progress and participate in a constructive
conversation with audience members and fellow artists. This is an exciting
opportunity to advance the open exchange of ideas and participate in the
creative process of performing artists.
Breadnbutter Dance presents EGGS, a dance theater collaboration between choreographers Melissa Hudson Bell, Celine Alwyn and Hannah Schwadron. Exploring the historical prevalence, the symbolic nature, and the unique materiality of eggs, this trio moves together through heartfelt and fantastical musings on one of the staples of the modern American life. Simultaneously awkward and beautiful, “EGGS” invites close consideration of substances and situations often overlooked.
Diana Lara with Bonner Odell present Their Universe: An exploration of what is behind this moment How do we experience awareness of our own identities and classify others and ourselves into categories? Two women are witnesses of each other’s struggle between staying connected to themselves and surrendering to classification. How do they retain wholeness in the face of fragmentation?
Zach Bernstein & Miriam Wolodarski present Seventh, a dance juggling piece that uses plastic balls to create imagery and soundscape to address the conventions and expectations of spectacle. This work exposes the quotidian beauty of success and failure: a dropped ball, a clean line, pedestrian solitude.
