You will never see PAPER the same way again...|
all. things. PAPER UPside Dance Company's newest and most daringly delightful performance will premiere on March 11 & 13, 2016. Eighteen charismatic contemporary dancers will ignite the stage of Carston Cabaret Theatre, in Wells Fargo Center for the Arts, in this collage of dance. Each piece illuminates a different type of paper and how it impacts our lives: whether it be love letters, childhood paper planes, intricate origami, the endless paperwork we all face, or the yellow post-its that keep it all together. Watch as this ubiquitous, 2-dimensional presence in our lives is transformed into a multi-dimensional cutting edge dance... the irresistible premiere of 'all. things. PAPER' will redefine how you see paper.

More about the Premiere of all.things.PAPER
Since 2012, UPside Dance Company, co-directed by Kate Vazzoler and Tanya Tolmasoff, has become known for the interactive element of their work, and for bringing dance to unconventional spaces in Sonoma County. In their original concept of all.things.PAPER, Vazzoler and Tolmasoff continue to turn-up-the-volume with dynamic choreographic pieces: the devilish, sepia-toned 'Paper Route', or UPsides quirky crowd-favorite 'Post-it an Ode to the Sticky-Note', or the alluring digital commentary of 'Paperless World'.
This is the first time UPside will be performing in a traditional venue. They have redesigned the space to evoke a giant library, and fold the guests into the performance. Carston Cabaret Theatres seating is arranged to give audience members surprising proximity to the dancers as they parade through the aisles. The stage set will feature UPsides 'Paper Waterfall', a dazzling and inventive installation by local studio artist, Jessica Martin.
This premiere continues UPsides strong emphasis on collaboration with national and international choreographers. Amanda Kreglow (Martha Graham school, Ted Talks October 2015), presents a stirring trio called 'Invitation'. Guest Artist, Diana Stanton (Variable Velocity, Cal Poly Dance Department), resets her award-winning dynamic and playfully combative piece, Rock Paper Scissors, set to Beethoven's Piano Sonata. Watta Ribas (SoCo Dance) choreographs a piece embracing paper memories in 'Paper Odyssey'. Jordan Hayes, an UPside soloist dancer, makes her choreographic debut with the company, in a stunningly soaring piece called 'Paper Plane'.
One of the more far-reaching collaborations in all. things. PAPER., is with Tim Casson of London, UK (Dance We Made, Sadlers Wells). UPsides premier is part of a larger project in the UK called CorresponDANCE. UPsides new piece, 'Projected Forest', is a haunting duet with the two UPside directors created from the written choreography of 25 international letters received in a mailbox.
Whether you've ALWAYS wanted to know how Post-it notes fly, or paper planes dance, or origami folds inspire choreography. Or perhaps you have NO IDEA what that might even look like- Great! Aren't you curious? UPside Dance Companys premiere of all. things. PAPER is a cheeky, cleverly dark, and enchanting evening of dance... not to be missed!
