Kaleidoscope In Concert
Kaleidoscope in Concert celebrates and supports local and national creative talent, presenting the diverse work of eight choreographers; Michael Garber, Anna Mansbridge, Judith Nelson, Hayley Shannon, Maya Soto, Karin Stevens, S.Tshedzom Tingkhye, and Dylan Ward.

Free Birds, by choreographer, performer, and award winning arts educator Maya Soto, is inspired by bird imagery as a metaphor for freedom and the power of community. The flock moves through space in tight formations jumping, falling, flying, and ultimately lifting each other up. Text by Alicia Keys and the delicate guitar work of musician Matt Kivel introduce the song Blackbird, movingly sung by Dionne Farris.

In response to the neo-funk soul vibe of the music, Kaleidoscope alumni, musician, performer, and choreographer S. Tshedzom Tingkhye challenged herself and the dancers by creating a quick, fast, and powerful piece. Migki Nag Tsel (Eye of a Jungle) conjures up images of forest creatures playing, plants growing, and an adventure.


Featuring an original sound design by choreographer Dylan Ward, Mistaken -or- Everyone Has Work to Do, explores team effort in the face of difficulty.  

Local choreographer, performer, and CDC faculty member, Hayley Shannon asks, "Where can we let go of fear and dive in to hope?" Set to an original score by Seattle musician Devin Bews, Bridging Boundaries explores how we can transform a feeling of isolation to one of connection and compassion.

In Memory of the Tide Flats considers how the land and waters in Seattle have been shaped by human influence. With an original score by Paul Rucker, recent recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship Award, choreographer Karin Stevens worked with the dancers to develop this work as an extension of her recent premiere, Record of the Anthropocene Movement.

Returning to create a new piece on the company after the success of Comradery, his touching and powerful work for the young men of Kaleidoscope, Michael Garber's Starseeds was inspired by ancient stories and prophecies describing a time of great change and spiritual awakening on Earth. Seeing children as the Light and Potential of the world, Michael pulled from images of angelic realms and the power and simplicity of human connection.

Two dances by New York choreographer Judith Nelson will premiere: Blue Skies, about the wonder and awe of a beautiful day and the joy of celebrating it together; and The Minute Waltz, with original lyrics sung at breakneck speed by Mandy Patinkin, a furiously fun romp through the classic waltz of Frederic Chopin.

Addio Amore, choreographed by Kaleidoscope Artistic Director Anna Mansbridge, is inspired by the beauty of the music (L'Arpeggiata by Giovanni Girolamo Kapsberger) and supported by images from Renaissance art and architecture. The free flow quality of the music, continuous and undulating, emphasized by the soaring rich cadences of the soprano, is complemented by rippling gestures and shifting geometric shapes.
