A premiere by
The Wendy Osserman Dance Company (with live music)
Music Director Skip La Plante
"Osserman finds cosmic implications in personal experience."
— Village Voice
"Six dancers search for antidotes to the current political turmoil while catapulting off one another’s energy."
Striving for equilibrium, the choreography draws on concepts from the Native American Medicine Wheel with its references to nature and animals, Everyday Tao by Deng Ming-Dao which relays wisdom from the ancients and recent reports of colliding dwarf stars. Music Director Skip La Plante creates scores performed on traditional as well as home-made instruments by La Plante with guest artist, violinist Concetta Abate. The program will conclude with Udjat, a trio made by Osserman in 1985, featuring Lauren Ferguson, Cori Kresge, and Emily Vetsch. “Udjat…has a darkness to it that is both powerful and compelling.” — Attitude
