Baltimore Dance Project
February 9 - February 10
Location: Proscenium Theatre
Known for presenting works of technical precision, joyful ease, dramatic relevance, and playful unpredictability, Baltimore Dance Project presents a diverse program of eight thrilling works, from tap and contemporary dance to poetry and spoken word. The evening also includes Infinite Transformations, an immersive multi-disciplinary installation that can be experienced prior to the performances.
Baltimore Dance Project includes several premieres among repertory works by company choreographers and guests. Premieres include Venom, a stunning trio work by guest choreographer Ryan Bailey, and Free, featuring choreography and spoken word by guest choreographer Amanda Fair. Ann Sofie Clemmensen presents two new works: A Poem Meant To Be Sung, a solo, and Shaped By Time, a duet. Brandon Russell presents an excerpt from his new repertory work, Ameliorate.
The program also includes Partial Recall II, a tap piece choreographed and performed by Carol Hess, and Lost, a Maryland Choreographers Showcase award-winning work choreographed and performed by Sandra Lacy, and Dolled Up, a work for five women examining the interiors under the fancy dresses, with original score by Timothy Nohe.
Infinite Transformations is a multimedia, transdisciplinary installation conceived by Foad Hamidi and Linda Dusman and created as part of an Imaging Research Center (IRC) Faculty Fellowship. The project brings together the fields of bio art, audio design, and visualizations, with a creative team involving Lee Boot, Ryan Zuber, and Alan Wonneberger, with choreography by Carol Hess.
