We Interrupt this Program to bring you NobleMotion live and in-person with a playful new evening of dance theater. In this strange and wacky production, an illogical chain of events unfolds, making way for unexpected outcomes. Line dancing, human sling-shots, and NobleMotion’s trademark physicality keep the audience guessing as dancers careen through the space. It’s a comedy of non-sequiturs with heartfelt moments tangled in-between.Read more

YOU COULD RELEASE ME

ISHIDA Dance Company presents an evening of thought-provoking premieres in world-class contemporary dance. Artistic Director Brett Ishida features new works based on original poetic and theatrical narratives that invite existential questions. Her work merges the fluidity of contemporary dance with the aesthetic beauty of the human form from classical ballet. Each work is inspired by personal narratives that expose the tenderness and suffering of human relationships: the purpose of which is to prompt kindness towards oneself and otherness. The evening will also include a new creation by French choreographer and former First Soloist with Les Grands Ballets Canadiens Jeremy Galdeano. Jeremy has choreographed works on Les Grands Ballets Canadiens and has been recognized for his talent in several choreographic festivals around the world. This is the first time his work will be performed in the US.
