In A Complex Sum, choreographer Kathleen Dyer takes inspiration from iconic female philosopher Ayn Rand's Romantic Manifesto. In these essays, Rand champions the individual and elaborately relates art as idealism viewed through one's own understanding. Dyer's movement vocabulary, a fusion of graceful virtuosity and idiosyncratic nuances, captures the oscillating nature of the ideal amid a community of minds. To an original score for string quartet by NY composer, Cristina Spinei, Ms. Dyer uses movable sets and projected video to construct layers of warmth, entanglement or comedy so that each moment offers multiple definitions and rearrangements of our observations.
