Kelly Kemp, Enrico Labayen & detour dance
Kelly Kemp presents her company's latest project, which highlights a series of threshold incidents that shape a person's identity, ego, and social relevance, exploiting the kinds of life-impacting moments that foster opportunity for personal growth. Artistically, this piece is about vulnerability, uncertainty, and the things people do when faced with important decisions. kelly kemp & company is a post-modern, non-traditional dance company, kk&co creates and organizes movement to consider hard questions and complicated ideas. Guided by open curiosity, we make dances with a broad lens, based on themes relative to as many people as we can reach. We develop physical landscapes that stand independently. We crave uncharted ground, embrace physical risk with open arms, and practice artistic invention every chance we get.
Drift: In this dance film, a pair of vagabond's hitchhikes, stumbles, and inch their way through striking landscapes. The pair raises their thumbs in search of a hospitable driver only to resort to a thumb war over who carries whom along the dusty roadside. With no destination in mind, they crawl belly first down deserted streets and fling into white picket fences. detour dance is led by Kat Cole and Eric Garcia, a San Francisco-based contemporary dance company that creates movement for the stage and film. Their works tackle the idiosyncrasies and quirky tenderness of human relationships set against the backdrop of our everyday lives.
