NEW WORK Visits Miami-Dade County Auditorium's Black Box, 4/11-12
Karen Peterson and Dancers, the nation's premier mixed-abilities dance company in the southeast, present New Work April 11 and 12 at Miami-Dade County Auditorium's On-Stage Black Box Theater.
The new program unites two of Miami's foremost choreographers - Dale Andree and Joanne Barrett - with guest-dancers from KPD's international collaborations in Sarajevo. "We continue this year's theme of incorporating live classical music performed onstage together with dance," adds Peterson, "by inviting Miami's famed violinist Vicki Richards to perform alongside our Company."New Work also proudly features dancers aged 25-63, something that Peterson feels is necessary for Miami's dance community today, to represent a full spectrum of ages onstage.
The evening opens with soloist Katrina Weaver's Square 1 which portrays the body as a vehicle to explore daily struggles with conformity, control, detachment and acceptance.She has been with the company for four years and participates in the dance troupe's international cultural exchange program, collaborating with mixed ability dance companies in Europe and Latin America.
