Benjamin Briones Ballet

Choreography by Benjamin Briones
Performing ‘In Between’

This piece focuses on bringing an awareness to the lack of clean drinking water in remote communities in Central and South America. I have constructed five sections about people in the community, the importance of the task at hand, the environmental havoc that they unknowingly take part in and live in, and the change that can take place in creating a better environment in which to live. The sections are as follows- Section One: The Walk, Section Two: Take Me to the River, Section Three: Glass Heart, Section Four: Rippling Grid, Section Five: Shadow to Prove Sunshine.

Mary Grace McNally & Artists

Choreography by Mary Grace McNally, in collaboration with dancers
Performing “Mollify”

Mollify attempts to find strength inside of a softened, able body.  We are interested in how society’s ideas of women, the expectations and limitations, influence our bodies’ reactions to the space and world around us. How we may become hardened, or guarded, in order to try and hone our power. In this body, we may be able to reduce the anger that can overwhelm our physicality and find fortitude while softening together.
