still,” by CORE Artistic Director Sue Schroeder, is inspired by the poem, “La Escuela,” by Garcia Lorca. Addressing the signs left on each of us by destiny, Schroeder’s signature style of movement investigation reveals the intimate alongside the archetypal.

HERD, by Leslie Scates, with a cast of four women, explores the qualities inherent in a herd. A herd offers protection against isolation and protects us when we are vulnerable. A herd is a place where we exist as a virtuosic individual and a known member of a close-knit group. Within a herd we are required to maintain multiple states of attention. Active participation within a herd manifests a web of intimacy through sharing conscious actions and connections. All this and more is performed to the arresting, original sound score by Andy Russ.

Lori Teague’s, I felt my life with both hands (inspired by an Emily Dickinson line) explores the unknown as a possibility or opportunity, as opposed to a space that creates fear. “It invites me to trust and interact with new sensations,” says Teague. “My interest lies with the momentum of movement–interrupting that momentum and following it. My desire is to create a work with overlapping surprises, shifts in textural environments, and unusual perspectives. I believe when we are in a state of free flow, with little or no agenda, we experience a random sequence of events in our lives. In this state of openness, we have an opportunity to uniquely connect to animate and inanimate things, sometimes feeling lucky and sometimes feeling confused by the unfamiliar.  And if we are blindsided by events that propel us off, or out of an intentional path, we are forced to notice our follow through, from chaos back into order.”

Color as Situation” explores the projection of light on objects, particularly the human body, and the way this light is processed by the human eye. The movement of the dancer in relationship to the work (the situation) and the audience’s view of this will create an experience in space and time. The performers will offer a kinetic investigation of color as a living organism that is in a constant state of transformation. With the human body as the artistic medium, the dancers will play within “situations” and conversations between the stable and the unstable nature of color.
