Event

DOUBLE/TAKE
Join Contrapose Dance, Boston's repertory dance company, in DOUBLE/TAKE, an evening of new/recent work.

Featured is the premiere of a new commission by David Parker, a solo by Boston's own Marcus Schulkind, the second showing of Sydney Skybetter's "Potemkin Piece", the first showing of Gianni Di Marco's "Sanitas" in its entirety, a premiere by Canada's Heidi Rood, and Artistic Director Courtney Peix's "Ground".  
Ranging from light and playful to dramatic, mesmerizing, and intense, these pieces highlight the unique skill set of the Contrapose Dancers.  Always there is the classical underpinning of ballet, but each piece requires something different from the dancers.  
David Parker, of David Parker and The Bang Group, presents an original commission, playing with rhythm and sound.  
Marcus Schulkind's solo "Courting the Hippogriff" is grounded in the modern aesthetic with his signature gestural accents.  
"Potemkins Piece", a trio by New York's Sydney Skybetter of skybetter and associates, contains energetic and flowing movement within a stark formal arrangement, examining deceptive appearances and the experience of watching, and being watched.  
Former Boston Ballet dancer Gianni Di Marco presents "Sanitas" for the first time in its entirety.  The movement expresses desperation, yearning, and intensity and addresses the fixation our society has on sanitation and cleanliness.
Originally from Massachusetts, Canada based choreographer Heidi Rood premieres "Dusk till Dawn" a commission for five dancers that is hypnotic in its fluidity and layered with staccato accents.  
Also featured is Ground, a piece by Contrapose Dance Artistic Director Courtney Peix, that addresses feelings of frustration and repetitive efforts, and the resolution that comes from moving forward.  

We hope you will join us for what will be an entertaining, thrilling and diverse evening of dance featuring the highly skilled and unique dancers of Contrapose Dance in one-of-a-kind pieces.
