The first few months of this semester were about creation of material. Before the end result of a performance piece, we develop as much material as we can. Then we cut and shape. In May, you’ll see the end result; now you see a work in progress!

We are the pairing of choreographer ChristinaNoel Reaves and a team of highly invested, skilled collaborators (The Creature). Together, we venture into realms of dance and sound, exploring emotional and physical extremes in an effort to illuminate that gray area of human idiosyncrasy in the middle. With this hybrid performance medium, thick with visual and aural textures, we offer a unique mode of expression and a rich experience for our audience members.

The Creature's children's company, The Ephyras, features dancers ranging in age from 7 to 13. The Ephyras train in the ways of The Creature: they learn precise technique, including physical and technical modern dance moves, and apply those lessons in dances of their own composition. The Ephyras’ training also emphasizes music, vocalization, and harmony, integrating these aspects into their work in a style akin to The Creature. They are partners and collaborators, working together to expand their ideas of what dance and theatre are and can be. The Ephyras' different backgrounds and previous training combine to build a company that reflects their individuality and collective energy. The Ephyras are an integral part of The Creature and we are so proud of them!

Music: Original music by Cameron Mizell and Aeric Meredith-Goujon
