Momentum Dance Company Premieres New Works For Spring Show

Momentum Dance Company, one of the oldest and most established professional contemporary dance companies in the Southeastern U.S., is proud to present its spring show on Sunday, March 25, 2018. The Spring Season will showcase a World Premiere by Delma Iles, choreographer Katie Brennan's debut of Off the Sidewalk, a piece with five dancers that explores the dynamic between the collective and the individual while traveling both outer and inner landscapes. Additionally, it will include Gold Falling Through Water, Brecht Suite and Shadows and Accumulations.

Gold Falling Through Water premiered on Momentum's 35th anniversary season. Iles, who choreographed the work for five women, calls t it "controlled chaos, a poem with tenderness, aspiration, and implied violence." It is set to the Sonata for Violin and Piano in A Major by French composer Gabriel Faure and the score will be played live by frequent Momentum collaborator and music consultant, Dr. Alan Ngim on the piano and will be joined by virtuoso violinist Anne Chicheportiche. Iles remembers that "creating this work was wrenching, but it poured out of me like water - unusually fast for such a monumental work".

Brecht Suite was created in 1996 for Cuban ballerina Rosario "Charin" Suarez when she first defected and came to the U.S. Iles created it for her as a transition from the classical repertory that she had mastered, to a newer, more modern expression of dance. The work presents portraits of three women, each a different age, but each ravaged by betrayal, lust, sorrow, and loss. This emotionally powerful work is set to three art songs by the masterful duo of Kurt Weil (music) and Bertolt Brecht (lyrics), creators of the Threepenny Opera and other works of postwar disillusion.
