Megan Bascom & Dancers bring two compelling works to Boston for an exciting evening of dance. The company will present excerpts of SAID.I.MEANT, an "insightful, complex, and curious" work developed from ideas of what washes away and gets left behind through transition and change. The audience will also see For Whom, MB&D's beautifully intimate and newest work, which originally incubated during residency at the Dance Complex the previous winter. Don't miss this "decisive and passionate" evening of engaging works set in the semi-round.
"Bascom's choreography is challenging and exciting; utilizing a constant sense of graceful falling that accompanies her unmistakable quirkiness. Its unpredictable, yet highly disciplined." - Tara Sheena for The Dance Enthusiast
For Whom is a project that is nestled deep in the architecture of care and the human need to nurture. Relationships emerge as if through a revolving door, and as characters blend qualities, the weight and beauty of each moment smolder into the next. Influenced by the ever-changing demographics and social shifts that are broadening the interpretation of relation and family structure, For Whom examines the significance of nurturing behaviors in human relationships and asks: what it means to care for one another, what compassion looks like, and how empathy affects our lives.
SAID.I.MEANT, a current work by Megan Bascom & Dancers, is a project influenced by global news and the growing number of people seeking refuge worldwide for reasons of war or natural disaster. Referencing the work of the UNHCR, whose goal is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees, SAID.I.MEANT takes a look at human experiences of transition, relocation, and the elements of life that wash away and get left behind. Exploring the components that cause changes in our lives, whether sudden and forced, or gradual and chosen, this work considers the flotsam and jetsam that come and go with time, affecting memory, tradition, and identity.
