Beyond the Threshold International Dance Festival
Beyond the Threshold: Seattle International Dance Festival encompasses a three day long event with performances by over 90 international, national and local artists presenting artist-driven exchanges and works of international scope.
Friday November 14 at 8pm and Sunday November 16 at 7:30pm the festival presents an exciting line-up of staged works at Broadway Performance Hall. The split-bill evening performances will feature:
JOHAN FORSMAN & LEA MARTINI (Sweden) a dance film by Gottenberg-based dancers and videographer Maja Kekonius, entitled "Black Spaghetti."
MACHINENOISY DANCE SOCIETY (Canada) - Up and coming globetrotters from Vancouver performing "Self-Less" - Stark imagery and beautiful and brazen partnering combine to tell the story of the aftermath of an unspecified event, in which two people unmoored from memory, struggle to evoke intimacy in a world where familiarity and routine have become mere debris.
PHFFFT! DANCE THEATRE COMPANY (Seattle) described as "...touching...witty...[and] illuminating by the P-I and led by Artistic Director, Cyrus Khambatta presents The People's Project - an emotionally powerful series of works inspired by four real life stories: an entrepreneur, a single mother of two, a union worker couple and a dancer (the latter featuring the choregoraphy of newcomer, Chris McCallister). See for yourself, this company has some of the fiercest dancers and dancing in town.
PHFFFT! and MACHINENOISY present a collaborative Work, "Un/Common Ground" performed together by the two companies looking at the premise that we are "so close yet so far away" - an exploration of the differences and similarities of two cultural neighbors.
SPECTRUM DANCE THEATRE COMPANY (Seattle/Israel/Palestine) performs excerpts in a special preview of "Chekhovian Resolution," Donald Byrd's (Artistic Director) collaboration with Israeli choreographers Nir Ben Gal and Liat Dror (Israel), and Palestinian composer, musician and singer Wissam Murad (Palestine). A collaboration bringing making the globe a smaller (and safer) place.
