"A true original..one of the most individualistic dance voices today." - The New York Times
Choreographer Chris Elam's dancers negotiate complex relationships -- and each other's bodies -- through gravity-challenging physical partnering. His distinct movement blends serious play, jarring tenderness, and sincere theatrics in a manner that manages to be simultaneously other-worldly and innately human. Informed by extensive international residencies from Cuba to Indonesia, this evening of new work is an entertaining investigation of social and interspecies interplay.
