Relay Dance Collective presents PRIME
Relay Dance Collective presents PRIME, an evening of top-notch contemporary dance that will move dance lovers and newbies alike. With 24 new and returning performers, the Seattle-based troupe performs at Velocity in 2016 following its 2015 sold-out performances which "demonstrated the joys of modern, contemporary, and hip hop dance without missing a beat" (SEATTLE DANCES).
Established choreographers Lauren Edson (Trey McIntyre Project, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago) and Seattle's legendary Wade Madsen join five varied choreographic voices for PRIME. Featured works include Edson's visceral contemporary ballet "Below the Surface." Madsen, one of Seattle's most active choreographers, has created a sassy, defiant group piece for women with a vintage flair.
True to Relay Dance Collective's mission of serving the broadest possible audience, this fourth-season performance will push boundaries with provocative works, in addition to offering a night of thrilling dance-theater.
Other choreographers include Ella Mahler, who Seattle audiences have seen in works by Catherine Cabeen; Fiona Vigdor, a Boston Conservatory graduate who went on to work with Merce Cunningham dancer Alan Good; and Jerene Aldinger, a past choreographer for Evoke Production's Full Tilt.
Co-Directors at Relay whose works have appeared in past seasons, and who again are contributing new works are Austin Sexton, formerly of 3rd Shift Dance, and Gabrielle Nomura Gainor, whose "Farewell Shikata Ga Nai" was presented at the Wing Luke Museum and made possible by a generous grant from the Office of Art & Culture | Seattle.
