DDCdances presents New Moves, the company's 31st Season Finale Concert. The performance features the premiere of The Room, choreographed by artistic director, Barbara Selinger in collaboration with John Sobczak, photography artist. The Room is a multi-media dance, which includes photographic projections that reflect places and people in space and time, "where the daily furniture of our lives stirs and the improbable arrives" (from This Room, a poem by Imitiaz Dharker). The Room, a feast for the eyes, creates a dreamlike atmosphere on stage that is both real and surreal. It is visually stunning work that is both thought provoking and touches your funny bone.
DDC's 31st Concert also celebrates the company's rich dance history with the performance of Dances for Isadora choreographed in 1971 by José Limón, one of the most prominent American choreographers in modern dance. His choreography is powerful; focusing on human drama, and often incorporates themes from literature, history or religion. Dances for Isadora, a beautiful classic work inspired by the life of dance pioneer Isadora Duncan, is a series of 4 solos performed to the music of Frédéric Chopin.
The concert will include the premiere of What Is Left Behind, choreographed by Corinne Imberski, DDC dance artist and company choreographer as well as Selinger's work Passing Through, an audience favorite, performed to the music of J.S. Bach.
