Fall Studio Series
Week 1 (Oct 8-10)
Set in Spectrum Dance Theater's intimate Madrona Dance Studio, the first week of the Fall Studio Series brings a mixed repertory program of works that deal with the subject of relationships: how people relate to each other, how they relate to society and how the audience relates to the performance. Included in this week will be Donald Byrd's Drastic Cuts: Duet (1992), a revised version of Soap Box* (2007), Conte Fantastique (2007) and the return of Sentimental Cannibalism (Act I of Bristle, 1993).
Peering Into the Ballroom: 3 Dances
Weeks 2 & 3 (Oct 15-24)
Utilizing the ballroom of the late 19th Century, each of the works in this program explores the complexity of relationships between men and women. Featured in this program is La Valse (Act II of Bristle, 1993), Longing (2005), and La Bal Noir (2006).
"Think of these late 19th Century ballrooms as a kind of social platform where complex personal dramas, charged relationships, distortions of memory and time, societal anxieties, anticipative excitement about, or despair facing impending change might play themselves out. These rooms were a place where the previous two centuries of European culture and its societies converged and were distilled into a single iconic image â" elegant embracing couples spinning gracefully in a beautiful chandeliered room." -Donald Byrd
