“turning the body into a dangerous machine” -Los Angeles Times

A dance about desire.

Acclaimed LA-based choreographer and ODC Theater Resident Artist  Holly Johnston and four dancers move through a shifting visual landscape as they explore the exhilarating, maddening, and often mysterious terrain of relationships and our instinct for self-gratification. Exploring the moments where we feel most alive, Want looks at the euphoria of a satisfied craving as well as the dark side of desire: unrequited lust, thwarted actions, and despair. High-velocity, high-risk partnering will leave audiences breathless. At the cutting edge of dance and technology, Want uses Projection Mapping Technology to transform the dancers’ bodies in unusual ways.
