http://dancealloy.org/dat/per_main.html

The new season kicks off in a performance entitled "ALLOY UNLOCKED...PART I" which will feature
4 SHOCKINGLY DIVERSE WORKS
4 UNFORGETTABLE NIGHTS OF DANCE

Join Dance Alloy Theater as they open their doors and let unique artistic voices be heard, as our spirits soar and our souls are fed.

"Alloy Unlocked...Part I" features two world premieres and two pieces from DAT's repertory.

The first world premiere is entitled "The Itch of the Key", by The Pillow Project's founding artistic director and principle choreographer Pearlann Porter. With music by Philip Glass and the Kronos Quartet, Porter was inspired to create another time and place. The result is an epic story of love...or terror...depending upon audience perception; that perception framed solely by the light of a projector on an otherwise pitch-black stage.

In "Look Me in the Eyes", Dance Alloy company alumna Gwen Hunter Ritchie returns to her former home to create a world premiere concerning sensory issues. Inspired by individuals who struggle to understand or control their body in space, Ritchie explores the five senses at their most extreme, and how such issues connect and separate us all.

The evening also includes "White Man Sleep" by Donald Byrd, "an effective portrayal of a person who's become unglued" (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review) as well as "Arms" by Sarah Marshall, "a concise gem...a structured series creating a unique narrative about the relationship of two individuals" (Pittsburgh City Paper).
