New Voices in Dance Presents Three New Works by Emerging Choreographers Tonight
The program will include:
"Portrait of Three Women" by Sam Householder is an exploration of the portraits of women by Gustav Klimt. The female trio is inspired by the aesthetics, underlying themes and pure humanity that Klimt portrays in his art as the movement elaborates and creates new perspectives and insights of one's personal journey.
"We Shot An Arrow" by Deborah Corrales is inspired by Ray Bradbury's, The Martian Chronicles. This piece is the exploration of mankind's illusion of the past and demise.
"Beau Soir" by William Huntington follows two lovers separated by fate and the gods as they fight to reunite, even if only in death. "Beau Soir" explores ancient Greek pathos through a contemporary lens as love and loss collide.
