Alpha Compass

Choreography by Karissa Barry

Performance/Collaboration: Christoph von Riedemann
Music: Moonlight Sonata, Beethoven (slowed to 800%), M-theory text, True Detective, edited by Karissa Barry
Costumes: Karissa Barry
Original performance/collaboration: Scott Fowler

Alpha Compass is inspired by themes of solitude, mortality, ego, and the human response to change. Using the physics-based “M-Theory” as a creative influence, this solo explores physicality motivated by what our existence may mean when applied to multiple dimensions of time, grasping to reality and identity.

A Dusk Dances premiere.

Performance: Alison Keery and Brendan Wyatt
Live music performance: Harrison Argatoff and Harry Vetro
Original music composition: Debashis Sinha and Chris Wilson

Reigning World Champions in the sport of pairs synchronized swimming for petite pools! The athletes will display the strength, co-ordination and skill needed to maintain the highest level of accomplishment. Cheer them on as they strive to overcome challenges and thrive in the glory of the sport.

Thank you to original cast member Wilson Blakley.

Uno Dos Y Tres

Choreography by Carmen Romero

Performance: Carmen Romero
Live music performance: Stephanie Pedraza
Costumes: Patricia Cueva

Based on a poem by Manuel Benitez Carrasco from the 1920s, UNO DOS Y TRES is a visual metaphor of the internal conflicts we deal with in life. This physical and emotional work offers the audience a flamenco performance that goes beyond the traditional presentation, shifting audience expectations and demanding an open mind and heart.
