August Series 2019
August 29th - September 1st, 2019
Shape of Things to Come, by Katie Spagnoletti, explores the fine lines separating present, past, and future, and how the constant pulse of time is warped and fractured through perspective and bias.
Frontier, by Bethany Green, shifts to a western theme, with a choreographic structure and source of inspiration nodding to literary devices to portray snapshots of humanity that build and lead to said ‘Frontier’.
On Love and Loss, by Thom Dancy, is a contemplation on connection and relationships and finding the beauty and growth that emerges from love and loss.
An Introduction to Nothing, by Carly Topazio, is inspired by ideas from British philosopher Alan Watts. A study on cyclical patterns, and the most 'real' state of ‘nothingness’.
Norupo, by Jessie Leigh Olson, is a Norwegian Rune Poem by the same name which inspired the piece exemplifying the strength within each dancer, and the physicality that embodies warriors.
Step Inside 2018 Inaugural Season
