A look at the next wave of choreographers emigrating from the fringes to the forefront of Bay Area Dance culture. Featuring Alyce Finwall, Minna Harri, Tanya Bello, Christine Bonansea, Michelle Fletcher and Malinda LaVelle. Presented by the Garage's SPF5 and WERK Collective. PROGRAM 1 AngelDirection and Choreography: Alyce FinwallDancers: Julia Hollas and Vivian AragonAlyce Finwall Dance Theater presents Angel, a tour de force performance piece for two dancers. Influenced by the work of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s The Yellow Wallpaper and Virginia Woolf’s A Room of Her Own, Angel delves into the surreal and unnerving realm of sexuality and aggressions that pits the audience's glare against the demanding physicality and exposure of the performance. Angel is a tightly constructed dance piece that inhabits a quiet, dark and mysterious room. Music by Biosphere, Carson Whitley, The Beach Boys and Joy Division. Soly y SombraDirection and Choreography: Tanya BelloDancers: Tristan Ching, Kelly Del Rosario, Norma Fong, Chin-chin Hsu, and Catherine WellsTanya Bello will premiere Sol y Sombra, a series of vignettes on the nature of reality, in both its harsh and beautiful extremes. PROGRAM 2No ExitDirection and Choreography: Christine BonanseaDancers: Marina Fukushima, Sebastian Grubb, Rosemary HannonChristine Bonansea will reprise her 2011 work No Exit. No Exit takes inspiration from Sartre’s play of the same name, offering a visually thrilling study of a triangular relationship marked by unrequited desire, cruelty, and suffering. Dead/AliveDirection and Choreography: Minna HarriDancer: Minna HarriMinna Harri will perform a one-woman piece titled Dead/Alive. As much about death and dying as it is a celebration of life and community, Dead/Alive breaks the mold of traditional dance performance, opening a dialogue with the audience and inviting audience members on stage.
