ALDEN MOVES Dance Theater

The modern day story ballet lives where contemporary modern dance meets the color of theater. Choreographers Alden LaPaglia and Gregory Kollarus use the music of Talking Heads to tell the story of young artists navigating life and relationships.


CoreDance Contemporary – six plane faces

Six sides, all square and of equal proportion, with no two faces the same. The intramural is disentangled to reveal a periphery of six emotions. The plane faces now colored, are engaged in a game of knots where relationships and strategy are used to unravel and put back together the pieces of the puzzle.


Erick Montes/Danceable Projects – OTHERWISE

OTHERWISE is a journey of movement and abstraction that in a meditative state leans towards moments of chaos and recovery; the ensemble gravitates around the thought that unity is not uniformity. Why are bodies more genuine in moments of exhaustion? How can we collapse and inform back from moments of crisis and uncertainty?


Rachel Thorne Germond – Performance Collage #2: TRIPOD

Rachel Thorne Germond’s work incorporates the conceptual aspects and aesthetic of collage, with an interdisciplinary method that includes elements of choreography, visual design, music/sound, theater, film, photography and video projection.


Rock Dance Collective – On Borders

A meditation on space and the imaginary and movable dividing lines that separate and categorize us, On Borders explores the humanity of living within confined parameters.


Thomas/Ortiz Dance – From Birmingham to Baltimore

This is a work that explores the concept of post democracy as it relates to social economical, cultural, sexual and racial equality as it was in the 60’s and how it compares to the current events of today. The 60’s had a dance and musical platform that echoed the sentiments of a young America, desperate for change on many of the key social debates that was then fought for and made law by the Supreme Court, which has shaped America today.
