spring / SPRING

Nancy Havlik’s Dance Performance Group with guest artists Arts for the Aging’s
Quicksilver Senior Dance Company and students from Company | E’s Youth Movement Center perform an evening of new dance works celebrating the natural world, life and movement in all its diversity.

The Program:

Fellow Creatures is a new dance / theater work for four dancers and three musicians, that considers the close proximity of humans to our animal friends; how we move, relate and confront each other in social contests. This work is an homage to Paul Taylor’s Cloven Kingdom and Elizabeth Bishop’s poem Sandpiper.

Space Between Dreams expands on the Company's continued exploration of the interaction between dancers and musicians as percussionist Nate Scheible and dancer Juliana Ponguta Forero support, juxtapose and contrast movement and sound, leading and following, taking turns.

In IT'S US!, Havlik collaborates with Dance Performance Group’s six dancers and three musicians on an improvisation score playing with structure and freedom, chaos and order and the search for epiphany.

Timelines, celebrates AFTA's Quicksilver Seniors Dance Company’s sense of community and joy leading up to their 20th anniversary and is co-directed by Havlik and violinist Anthony Hyatt.
