About the Work:
Teresa Fellion presents "The Mantises Are Flipping (P.S. I'll have whatever they're having)". This work investigates reactions to sound and explores dualities through movement. The piece adopts a voyeuristic point of view into the intimate, idiosyncratic relationships among eight individuals. Sentiments vary through a range of quirky, stylized vocabulary. Teresa Fellion's choreography is like a car engine of movement; transference of energy that is constantly remolded/shifted, and brings us to a beautiful place. -Celeste Miller, Jacob's Pillow International Dance Festival
Teddy Tedholm's 'Urban Deity' will create the traditions of a new religion that fuses simple ideas with the complications of living in the 21st century. Through explosive, meticulous movement, the audience will be immersed in a mashed-up atmosphere of new and old. Mr. Tedholm will retrofit new ideas into old molds to create something new... with a smirk. 'Urban Deity' is a new wave look at the oldest ages we know of.
