PROGRAM:

INCONSISTENCY (Christopher K. Morgan)

Opening the program will be Morgan’s 2014 work Inconstancy, a look at relationships and how the grass always seems to be greener on the other side. This funny and poignant work, praised by the Washington Post as “a fast paced kinetic charge – that has emotional content, too”, features an original score by violinist/composer David Schulman.

EXQUISITE DUELS (John Malashock)

Drawing from a range of some of his most beloved duets, Exquisite Duels highlights John Malashock’s profound affection for narrative dance. The essence of human connection unfolds through mesmerizing choreography, weaving tales of star-crossed lovers and the intricate dynamics of siblings. With a masterful blend of tension, humor, and raw intensity, this work is a poignant reflection of our own experiences.

OVER, UNDER, THROUGH (Christopher K. Morgan)

The evening will close with the world premiere of Over, Under, Through. Morgan has been ruminating on the immense weight we are all carrying in the current state of the world. How do these sustained burdens impact us? What extreme lengths do we go to in order to work our way out from under them? Can we climb over such immense obstacles? And what is on the other side? These questions spur movement metaphors that will stretch the dancers as they climb over and under, to get through to JOY. 

 

  • WHAT IS A RELAXED PERFORMANCE? A relaxed performance is where the ambience of the theatre ‘rules’ are relaxed. These performances are ideal for anyone who would benefit from a less intense environment, and is also designed to be welcoming to individuals with neurodiverse needs and those attending with them. Along with offering a few technical modifications and support materials, this supportive environment provides an opportunity to attend live dance in a comfortable setting. As the name suggests, these performances may feel less formal and more supportive of sensory, communication, movement and learning needs. At no time will anyone be asked to leave the performance due to sound, movement or behaviors related to differing cognitive/developmental abilities. This is a “no shush” zone. This will be a judgement-free environment.
