1. Alexis Clanin has created a contemporary work for seven dancers that focuses on the perception of time and the effect time has on us physically and emotionally. Clanin has been working collaboratively with her dancers with hopes of relaying the message of how precious time truly is.
2. Anna Grooms has created a contemporary work in collaboration with her five dancers that focuses on the relativity of space and the way that we view the space around us based on our perspectives. Anna and her dancers have been exploring movement vocabulary and costuming, as well as lighting and production elements to play with the visibility of the dancers on stage, which provides the audience with a variety of perspectives from which to experience the piece.
3. Kate Gupton, and her five dancers have been working to create a light-hearted dance about the “wood wide web” and what we can learn about the nature of communication. To create this work Kate and her dancers asked questions like “How do our bodies
communicate?” …  What are the similarities and differences in the ways humans communicate as compared to the natural world?” … and “How can we embody the physical and chemical properties of communication in the human brain and natural world?”
4. Lauren Kelly is premiering a sociopolitical work incorporating contemporary and aerial dance, called ‘Entangled.” Alongside her five dancers, Lauren has been working collaboratively to explore how women are oppressed through the lens of the proverbial principle of “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil,” which Western society has
interpreted as “turning a blind eye.”
5. Marissa Kuczkowski, in collaboration with her dancers, musicians, videographer, and lighting designer, has facilitated a creative process fueled by site-specific improvisation. This team of artists visited three sites around Greensboro to generate all of the material used to craft the staged performance. Marissa hopes that her work inspires audiences to see their surroundings in a new light and find inspiration throughout the physical world.
6. Magalli Morana and her cast of six dancers have worked collaboratively to develop a process-driven and research-based contemporary dance work examining both the somatic and psychological response to trauma, as well as the idea of collective trauma, particularly in regards to women. Making use of trauma-informed practices in this process, Morana has placed an emphasis on finding a way to communicate how trauma affects the mind and body without reenacting traumatic experiences. Ultimately, with this
piece, Morana and cast hope to open possibilities for healing and reclaiming one’s body.
7. Jordan Shadley has created a contemporary work that revolves around the idea of miscommunication and confusion using the format of a group chat. Alongside her six dancers, Jordan has created movement exploring partnerships, repetition, and the incorporation of vocals with movement. Jordan will also be creating a live soundscape during the piece in collaboration with her dancers’ movement.
