FALL SEASON (September 15-17, 2016) presents three diverse interdisciplinary pieces that blur the lines between traditional dance performance, visual art installation, and theater.
Included on the program are:
The Opposite of Killing (2010) by Bulgarian-born choreographer and visual designer Tzveta Kassabova
The Opposite of Killing explores change, anger, understanding, confusion, and sorrow, related to the absence of a close friend. The work was originally created at a seven day residency at New Bulgarian University (Sofia), was reworked at presented at Dance Place, DC and staged for student casts at University of Florida, UMBC and Middlebury College. The piece won four Metro DC Dance Awards 2012.
“I view dance as a visual art form and it is this belief that informs my creative process. To me, the clarity and detail of the visual environment serves as an invitation for the audience, emphasizing the images and feelings that the dance evokes.” -- Tzveta Kassabova
Fragments (2014) by choreographer and visual artist Jonah Bokaer. Fragments marks the return of the architecturally elegant and contemplative work that revolves around two distinct installation elements. Together they create an intimate environment in which to explore the tonal resonance of kinetic movement. Bokaer explains, "The idea is to highlight the dancers and the space with fragmentary reflections and refractions of light and space.”
World Premiere by Company Artistic Director, Daniel Charon. Elegy is a poetic reflection choreographed in response to the current epidemic of senseless killings plaguing America. It is created in the memory of the Orlando shooting victims.
