Circle Modern Dance is proud to present its 26th annual production of Modern Dance Primitive Light, an anticipated solstice celebration of movement and creativity in Knoxville. This unique performance brings together local choreographers, dancers, and musicians for an unforgettable community arts experience. Audiences will enjoy exciting new contemporary dance works accompanied by live music set amidst the warm ambiance of the Historic Laurel Theater. This years production features work from Circle company members as well as some of Knoxvilles best guest choreographers.

Live music is always a highlight of the performance. Musical director Nate Barrett creates acoustic arrangements of the music selected by each of the choreographers. Always eclectic, this years set ranges from Janis Joplin to Vivaldi. The music is performed by an incredible house band made up of some of Knoxvilles finest musicians.

Circle is pleased to include choreographer Deborah Whelan in its long list of community collaborators. After teaching dance to children at Beaumont Magnet Academy for over 20 years, Debbie has retired and returned to teaching and choreographing with adults. Her piece explores our current political climate and its impact on  interactions between people. Whelan describes her piece as being about hope; Hope that matter who we are, or where we come from, we can learn to live together in harmony

Guest choreographer Harper Addison has performed and created work all around the country with companies in Georgia, Florida, California, and New York. Her piece is inspired by a series of poems by Daniel Ladinsky and explores the theme of loving, appreciating, and communicating with others.

Long-time Circle collaborator and MDPL regular Angela Hill will present a solo to be performed by Circle Core Member Darby OConnor. Amends is set to a mash-up of Janis Joplins Mercedes Benz and the traditional spiritual Aint that Good News. The piece explores limits, privilege, and virtuosity in performance.

Winter Circle, choreographed by Jennifer Jones, celebrates the creative and healing potential of women working together. The piece is a collaboration between the choreographer and dancers, drawing upon each dancers individual background and experience.

Many Circle Modern Dance Core Members will present work, including a piece by Amelia Loehe, performed by identical twins, about a relationship over a lifespan. The dancers weave in and out of unison and individual movement reflecting how two lives connect and re-connect over time. Circle core members Nate Barrett, Callie Minnich, and Darby OConnor will perform an improvised piece exploring movement and text. Darby OConnor will also be presenting a piece based on introductions and how people define themselves in their first encounters with one another.

Finally, Circle is excited to present the work of two local companies. Momentum Dance Lab will perform Alive choreographed by Ashley Corey. The Katharine Slowburn Experience, will present work from their November 2017 production The Garden.

Modern Dance Primitive Light is a family-friendly show and participates in the Penny 4 Arts program. Circle Modern Dance would like to thank the Tennessee Arts Commission and WUOT for their support of this production.

Founded in 1990 as a platform for area choreographers to showcase their work, Circle Modern Dance believes that everyone is a dancer, and every body has the right to dance.
