This epic performance event features a 60 minute dance work created by Maya Soto with original sound score composition by Paurl Walsh.

Nine of Seattle's most powerful dancers make up the cast including Danica Bito, Teresa Hanawalt, Amy Johnson, Jana Kincl, Cristen Klaja, Erin McIntire, Uraina Nagy, Carla Negrete Martinez and Maya Soto. Gathering Bones will premiere in Seattle, WA at Velocity Dance Center's Founders Theater on May 18 and 19 2013 at 8pm.
Gathering Bones is an image based work exploring themes of internal personal power, feminism and femininity through dance, music and art. We are diving into princess, warrior, queen and wild woman archetypes through a variety of cultural histories and resources. This piece goes back in time, exploring stories and myths of powerful and wild women.
In Gathering Bones, the performers are both the damsels in distress and the heroes of the moment. They are princesses. They are warriors. And in the end, they are both at the same time. Dark, earthy and feminine, they share a story of transformation through the power of movement.
