Flashpoint: An Evening of Contemporary Dance

Fire your imagination at an evening of dance featuring the latest works from four exciting choreographers. Each contributes an original work, snapshots of the varied voices of the contemporary dance world.

Au Dance Collective is made up of ten choreographers/dancers, largely comprised of UW Dance School graduates, whose dynamic work blends balletic lines with modern technique, hip-hop and athletic force. Coming together out of a shared goal to represent the experiences of people of color and marginalized minorities, Au Dance Collective performs an abstract work inspired by family and community.

Helmed by choreographer Gierre Godley, all-male dance group Project44 (NYC) strives to transform preconceived notions of masculinity in the arts, while showcasing the beauty, versatility and athleticism of the male dancer. “The Home I Grew Up In” is inspired by the journey of self-acceptance.

Enson, Mann & Sjoberg is an ensemble of notable Vashon artists Martha Enson, Leah Mann, Lynelle Sjoberg and videographer Alex Carrillo. Their dance/theatre piece draws upon contact improv, modern dance, physical theatre and video projection. In Shatter Zone, they explore universal survival instincts that we experience when the world brings us to our knees.

Seattle-based choreographer/performer Kim Lusk is a frequent collaborator and rehearsal director for Zoe|Juniper dance company, a unique and rising voice in the local scene. In “Underdog Solos,” Lusk presents a smart, humorous work for three dancers that interprets the theme of one-upmanship set to a percussive original score.
