Kinetics Dance Company unveils a collection of new work on Saturday evening, May 6th at Columbia’s Slayton House Theatre. FLUTTER features the professional company in three premiers and one piece of returning repertory. The Company is excited to announce the addition to the program of several guest artists.
Artistic Director Lauren Tait will present a new quintet, Chrysalis. In two sections, Tait plays with the contrasting states of sleep and wakefulness on deepening levels. In a new work of seven company members, guest choreographer Mariah Appleton explores the concept of fate, and how a simple word can mean so much. Company dancer Desiree Koontz-Nachtrieb brings a new contemporary duet to the program. Performed en pointe, the piece showcases the dancers’ elegance and technical expertise overlaid with non-traditional movement and weaves the evocative thread of a story between the dancers. KDC is honored to welcome students from its neighbor, Howard County Community College Dance Company, to perform the compelling and athletic Dark Desires by visiting choreographer Maurice Watson. Finally, returning to the program this spring, Ratri Divas Samaanjasya, by Jaya Mathur and Lauren Tait, layers Classical Indian Bharathanatyam with modern dance in a mandala of color and nuanced sculptural movement.
Advance rates are available on-line only through the day of the performance, after which general admission tickets may be purchased by cash or check at the door. Ticket voucher holders should contact the studio in advance of the show to redeem their vouchers for show tickets.
