coldness & lightness, the newest work by choreographer Ashley Thorndike-Youssef and electroacoustic music composer Peter V. Swendsen, premieres in the round featuring Boris Willis, Annie Kloppenberg, Claire Alrich, Candace Scarborough, and Laurie Atkins.
At once austere and tender, coldness and lightness is an arresting portrait of the moment at which the ground cracks—sudden destabilization. Six powerful, contemporary dancers slice, wipe, and propel their way through a clearly tenuous landscape.
This intimate but not interactive space offers audiences the opportunity to experience dance up close, yet with a clear distinction between performer and audience. The result is a performance of dance and sound that can be experienced: wholly, physically and intellectually.
