En Aparté (45 min.)
A duet for the whole family (ages 6 and up)
This family show explores the beauty, poetics, and inspiration in daily life. The work reveals the unique in everything around us. Through the bodies of the performers, movement becomes dance, noise becomes song. Household events, like a shower and the cacophony of dishes, are transported into the marvelous. En Aparté translates roughly to “in separate.”

TU (45 min.)
TU (or “you”) is an exercise of view. The piece features hooded dancers in a ghostly environment. Hoods hide the faces and expressions of figures who, ultimately, all walk the same path. An awakening reveals the differences behind everything that looks alike.
