For Liars, For Sages and For Those Who Are New is an energetic, interesting and engaging Dance Theatre piece.

For Liars, For Sages and For Those Who Are New is a joyful display of the blurred line between fantasy and reality. A perfect blend of technical precision, passionate performances and a bunch of cool stuff put together!
Overture & Underscore is a portrait of a modern day ballerina; pared down and exposed as a graceful, strong, sensual woman that moves outside of “the line”, away form the shelter of safety and convention. This piece is about loss, stripping away of layers, vulnerability and giving away power in a world that values appearance, beauty and going along with the masses.
Sircle: Combining raw emotional intensity, technical precision and commitment to exploring the human experience, the dancers invite the audience to look “at” and “through” the piece, to become aware of the elements that live under the surface.
From Fever or Forgotten Wings is a soulful portrait of individuals, capturing their spirit through dramatic poses and carefully orchestrated interactions between bodies. This piece brings a balance between light and dark moods and graceful and impulsive movements into a unique relief. A sense of femininity, intimacy and density all come together seamlessly.
9point0: Ballet, Modern, jazz and pedestrian/human vocabularies are synthesized into feverish and unexpected responses. Technically honed ensemble work with surprising changes of level, timing and partnering matched with interesting patterns fuel the conversation and create a connection with the audience.
A Time Will Come is, at first look, a duet with a bench. Spending time with the piece, the experience unfolds, at once, into a solo, a duet and a trio exploring and discovering resistance, cooperation and independence.
UnRavel is set to the hauntingly beautiful music of Angelique Kidjo. A lone dancer encircled by flickering candles tempts, seduces, controls and conceals by small gestures, seemingly never to end arches, long legs and isolations. A true gem in the repertory.
All That We Let In reflects the dilemma of exploring individuality and purpose while honoring tradition and history. Slow controlled, beautifully organic movement is set to a score by Zola Jesus. Dancers move in and out of the group dynamic, finding a broad range of expression and line while being internally (or externally?) controlled and drawn back to the idea of safety and expectation.
Trysting Stiles and Shell Games for Five is a fast paced explosion of unexpected twists, turns, jumps and partnering. Static and stoic meets high energy and highflying lines to culminate in a visual experience of contemporary jazz dance.
