SHARP is more than a performance, it is an experience that translates raw human emotion utilizing contemporary movement to connect the audience through individual interpretation. In this performance, SHARP will reprise original modern dance pieces, including the genre-defying PUZZLE as well as 669, a piece inspired by the compassion of Sir Nicholas Winton who organized a rescue mission to save Jewish children during the Holocaust.
669 is a full-length modern dance piece inspired by the stories of Sir Nicholas Winton and the families for whom he intervened. Winton organized a rescue mission for 669 children of mostly Jewish families who were at risk from the Nazis in occupied Czechoslovakia. He secured them safe passage to Britain and continued in finding homes for all of them. Most of their parents perished in the Auschwitz concentration camp. 669 demonstrates the wide array of human experiences from the crushing hatred of bigotry to the purest compassion of the human soul.
The other half of the program will contain PUZZLE, a collaborative modern dance experience designed to piece together diverse life experiences and challenge the ingenuity of both the artists and audience. Co-created by Diane Sharp-Nachsin, SHARP Dance Companys Artistic Director, and Joe Cotler, Koresh Dance Company Member, PUZZLE will be a combination of two styles, ages and experiences all rolled into one exciting piece.
SHARP Dance Company is quickly becoming recognized for their combination of inspired artistry, imagination capturing stories of performance and the discipline required of such performance mastery.
