Note: The performance on Saturday, October 11, will be followed by an informal question and answer session.
Note: The show is all-ages, however, "I AM the Bully" may be better suited for ages 10+ for more sensitive children due to realistic depictions of bullying.

Project support: modus operandi is supported by Velocity Dance Center's Creative Residency + Access Velocity programs. This project is supported, in part, by an award from 4Culture. Partial funding from the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture. Additional project support provided by Fremont Abbey Arts and SHIFT Movement and Healing Arts.


About the performance:
Miller will present her trio What We Have, a powerful testament to the tenacity of family. In her piece Threshold, two dancers experience freedom and restraint in their physical reliance on each other. I AM the Bully (premier), explores the psychology behind bullies in an emotionally intense examination of power, defeat and the resilience of human nature.

Rogers will re-stage SIGHT, an investigation of perspective and identity, unveiling the notion that it is often easier to live in the world while blindfolded than it is to truly see one another. She will premier a new piece, REWIND, that portrays the story of a life in reverse, a de-identification of sorts, and an ode to memory, slowing down, getting lost, and running.

About Michele Miller/Catapult Dance:
Michele Miller/Catapult Dance is known for its use of a hybrid of movement forms including modern dance, contact improvisation, martial arts and physical theater. The company utilizes physical experimentation and practiced methods of falling, flying and inversions to create a sensual, kinetic, emotional landscape. The seven dancers in Catapult Dance push the physical boundaries of movement and technique through an intense rehearsal process that builds the trust and technical skill necessary to execute the physical material with effortless mastery. www.facebook.com/CatapultDance.
