Caverns: Dana's new work

I am so excited about our Sept 21-23 performances.  This evening of dances is a celebration of 20 years.  There are so few dance companies that reach 20 and I am very thankful to our audiences, dancers, designers, supporters and our board for making sure that we continue to create quality work. 

The works date back to 1999 and continue through today with a new premiere.  I am just putting the finishing touches on my new work Caverns.    This dance is a trio that explores the idea of recurring memories and the images that play, reset and ultimately replay again in our minds. Caverns deals with an individual who studies a past relationship.  She questions her actions, relives them and arrives at a contemplative moment of confronting her own psyche. I have been very interested in how the trauma of past relations affects all future relations in our lives.  They are the lessons learned that propel us forward or stunt our growth. 

I can't wait to hear your thoughts on the show in person. I look forward to speaking with each of you in September.  Sincerely, Dana
