Fast Forward Curated by Sangeeta Yesley
About The show
Fast Forward provides opportunities for choreographers working in all dance forms to workshop 25 – 35 min pieces on a shared bill curated around a theme.
In April, Fast Forward’s theme is ‘‘Unrest & Raw’’ with Thomas/Ortiz Dance and Borne Dance Company.
Thomas/Ortiz Dance – Performing “From Birmingham to Baltimore” – Choreography by Ted Thomas
This piece is a reflection and comparison of the past versus current social political justice issue of discrimination and how we must continue to work together to overcome.
Borne Dance Company
Borne Dance Company – Performing “Skin” – Choreography by Katie Kilbourn in collaboration with Kianna Moye and the dancers
“Skin” focuses on the concept of nature versus nurture and man’s assent from our natural selves. The piece is inspired by Freud’s theory of the Id, Ego, and Superego and how humans have evolved overtime into complicated creatures plagued by societal pressures, materialism, and perfectionism. “Skin” explores the nature of humans primitive and instinctual side versus learned societal expectations placed upon them. We are forever trying to find our place in the world, in the universe, and in our own skin.
