Alana O. Rogers Dance Company presents the evening-length premiere of Into Ice, November 11-12 and 18-19, 2016, at Velocity Dance Center in Seattle, Washington. Into Ice is a dance work that explores a frozen landscape and its snow-laden inhabitants in three parts: Into Ice, Kingdom, and Home. Inspired by Rogerss travels kayaking in Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska, the work is a culmination of over two years of research on the people, places, and ecology of the Arctic. The dance promises a sensory feast of ice and light, illuminating the Arctic through its fauna, and frosted geography and geology. Stories of adventure and survival, isolation, coldness, and the desire for home and hearth are also conveyed through Rogerss theatrical and compelling choreography. Composer Nico Tower provides live accompaniment to the work with an original score of acapella vocals, piano, and percussion, highlighting the vastness and haunting beauty of this glacial world.
A performance art installation will begin 30 minutes before each evenings performance. Featuring a large ensemble cast, the installation will combine sculpture, light, and improvisational movement designed to mimic the aftermath of an avalanche.
The performance on Saturday, November 12, will be followed by an informal question and answer session.
