Some of the dances MOMENTUM audiences will see:

“Walkabout” by Sarah Carlton: Resulting from her stay in Australia last year, this solo dance with film projection is based on Aboriginal dance and storytelling, expressing Australia’s awesome landscape and wildlife.

Tara Lihn’s fast-paced and comical dance expressing the child’s freedom and imagination in play.

Carly Boland’s energetic flashback to the Disco Diva 1970s.

“If Only You Knew” by Jennifer Updyke: a duet with projections, expressing everyday doubts combined with the trauma of obsessive-compulsion disorder, that afflicts many people at some point in their lives.

“Bloom” by Tricia Aaron: Inspired by the moment just before a flower blooms, transferred to the human movement of opening to something new, or simply growing.

“Passing By” by Brianna Powers and Crystal Stroud: a modern dance based on pedestrian movements, as meditations on noticing what otherwise just passes us by.

“Evocation” by Julie Takagishi: Evoking the relationship of earth’s natural cycles to the journey of the human spirit.

Emily Stebbins works with experimental, creative and “crazy” movement, exploring lines and connections, and the architecture of dance.
