In Columbia Chasing (2010), dance ceres studies the river as it devours ravenously. It nurtures, but it does not care. It knows nothing of judgment or difference, but simply exists in the thoroughness of movement. dance ceres embraces the endlessness because there is no mechanism for stopping, and through the rush, celebrates the things that profoundly surprise humans. The body knows when it is finished grieving. It becomes lighter. It flows again. "Wash out the human in me and let me be like the river." Columbia Chasing was developed through the AIR program at the Garage and a commission from Stanford University's Dance Department.
A Triplet Tale by Zell Dance takes the audience on a whimsical journey through movement, music and myth. With a combination of jazz, swing, ballet and humor, the audience follows a pair of misfits on their quest to uncover the legend of The Triplets and bring them back to dance again. A Triplet Tale, inspired by the music from "The Triplets of Belleville", has been described as complex, funny and engaging.
Synchronicity & the Sacred Space by Weber Dance probes the strange landscape where scientific thought encounters the unknown, and human perception and reality are fluid partners in an enigmatic dance. The piece incorporates the work of Jon Turk, a storyteller and adventurer who writes nonfiction about his expeditions by kayak. Nominated as one of the top ten explorer's of the year by National Geographic, Jon's story telling shares a provocative tale of both the tragedy of deep cultural loss and the beauty of alternative ways of perceiving/living in the world.
