INCEPTION Dance Theater, the Pacific Northwest's new and dynamic contemporary ballet company in residence at the classic and historic Langston Hughes Performing Arts Center, is hosting it's very first fundraising Gala Performance on the evening of Thursday, January 31st from 7-9pm.
The evening will begin with a meet and greet with the artistic and administrative staff of INCEPTION, including Webmaster Josh Deininger, Ballet Mistress Rachel Gonsalves, and Artistic Director Christian Richards. The event will include silent auctions for items that will include original paintings by accomplished artist Linda Wilcox, featured in the 32nd Annual Nagasaki Peace Exhibition in Nagasaki Japan, and phenomenal metal prints of INCEPTION images from resident photographer Andrew Ness.
The evening will culminate in a fifteen minute, fully produced stunning INCEPTION dance concert upstairs in the newly refurbished state of the art Langtson Hughes Performing Arts Center theater. Three works will be presented including "Spirare" and the world premiere of "Grin", both choreographed by INCEPTION Artistic Director Christian Richards and composed by SUNY Fredonia's Chair of Composition Rob Deemer, and "Camille...A Poem of Intimacy" choreographed by former Paris Opera Ballet artist Jean Paul Commelin and set by Josh Deininger.
For those of you who are not familiar with our organization, INCEPTION seeks to express art and artists in an open, vibrant, powerful, collaborative manner. Using a strong classical, technical base, boundaries will be pushed musically, choreographically and thematically. INCEPTION will tell stories, using dance to express and connect with the human within. Original music by world-class composer Rob Deemer, Chair of Composition at SUNY Fredonia, and others melded in stunning harmony with movement by thoughtful, innovative choreographers seeking not to talk to or at the audience and community, but with, a true discussion of what is, what has been, what could be.
Please come and be a part of our continuing adventure!
