Circle Modern Dance and Momentum Dance Lab present
Continuum – a showing of nearly new, preview and spontaneous choreography
Sunday, June 8th 7pm
The Emporium Annex (100 S. Gay St.)
$5 at the door
Artists of both Momentum Dance Lab and Circle Modern Dance will present short works alongside an improvised group score with dancers from the community. This performance will offer dance pieces created over a continuum from the most recent offerings from Circle Modern Dance’s spring show to a preview of what Momentum Dance Lab will bring to the stage in their upcoming August performance.
Dancers from both companies and from the Knoxville community will present an improvisational group piece of “choreography of the moment” to the music of Nathan Barrett. The movement score will be created during a workshop with Angela Hill, a longtime member of the Knoxville dance community who is returning home for a visit from Sydney, Australia. Hill will also perform Russian Doll, which is inspired by her current pregnancy, female gender roles and the mother-daughter continuum.
Leah Pinder of Momentum Dance Lab will present Still Life Beauty, articulating those moments of unexpected joy that sometimes completely take hold of you. Shannon Efteland, Cara Bradshaw and Gloria Jimenez show true creative cooperation with their brand new work, Collaboration 101. The company will also perform their signature crowd pleaser, Taking the Chair.
Choreographer Morgan Fleming of Circle Modern Dance will show a trio of virtuosic and powerful movement entitled, A Study In. In the duet Mindscore, Himmat Kaur (Victoria Metz) gives us a glimpse into the innermost self. Ajeet Khalsa’s Aprons will lead the audience to a time of matriarchal humor, familiar warmth and tenderness.
The dynamic energy of both of these companies with their diverse offerings is a treat not to be missed! The performance is $5 at the door. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 524-7615 or 670-2748
