About the Work:

Kelley Donovan & Dancers' "Shifting Sea" explores sudden dramatic shifts such as loss or illness that create vulnerability in our lives. It is a dance about how quickly life can take an unexpected turn that changes our entire existence. Through mercurial weight shifts we will explore how these sudden shifts, optimistically force us to adapt.

Maya Orchin's “In the Wake” is an exploration into the depths of fear, how it manipulates our perceptions and twists the fabric of our consciousness. This piece beckons the viewer into a dissected existence, torn between the physicality of real-life traumas and the existential unfolding that follows. How can the fears morph once embodied? The dancers navigate a hyper-vibrational space creating a new landscape that's filled with a vigorous and electric scene. They layer their own experiences on stage within a futuristic dimension, giving birth to something unexpected. The work will be performed by Hannah Wendel, Shawn Brush, and Katarina Lott, with music by Elizabeth Hart and Iván Lee and video by Simon Burrill.
