MEETINGS ALONG THE EDGE – (by Venetia Stifler) explores our unexpected and visceral responses while encountering new rituals, ideas, people, and societies. A full company work the dancers fly through the space confronting one another. We are reminded of conflicts dangerous and real.

CHIMERA – (by Amy Wilkinson) anger is viewed as a three headed monster, first overtaking our reason, uncontainable sarcastically distorted, never really leaving, always present, there, at the edges of our consciousness.

PORTRAITS- (Ashley Fox) Images appear as if from a dream, without reason. Wacky, distorted characters appear and dance to 50’s musical favorites, then drift away into the next suspended moment. It’s a lighthearted look at social pretense.

SHORTENING THE DISTANCE – (Edson Cabrera Vieta) exploring what it is that helps us identify new thoughts and swiftly take a step of action toward committing to it. The moment when you see your path and the time it takes to believe it. Shortening the distance between two people and bringing them toward commitment.
