The Dance Complex faculty in a 19th anniversary concert to raise money for the Julie Ince Thompson Theatre on Saturday, 13 November at 8:00p and Sunday, 14 November at 7:00p. $19 donation requested.
Dance and Back Again will feature new and newly revisited dances by members of The Dance Complex’s faculty. With the expected diversity of form and function, there will be a large group work choreographed by internationally acclaimed Flamenco Master Ramon do los Reyes featuring guitarist Roberto Rio. For lyrical jazz buffs, Lisa Simon’s Simon Says dancers will perform Comes Love, premiered at last August’s MassDance Festival.
Margot Parsons will have two new pieces; Journée, a trenchant solo and Stirrings, a duet with an original score by Ai Isshiki.
Prometheus directors Diane Arvanites and Tommy Neblett will premier Desiderare, a work suggestive of nineteenth century brothel workers where women are waiting for their lives to change. The chairs that support them in their wait become a part of their story, a leverage for change, a representation of inner strength or resignation, a voice in solidarity, a tool of passion, and prison’s metaphor.
Rozann Kraus’ haunting sextet 3 oz, revisited and revised, will be danced each night, while a quartet by Danny Swain will be presented only in Sunday’s concert. Contemporary ballet artist Rebecca Rice is working on a new piece for this event.
