Renay Aumiller presents an excerpt from her 2015 Blood Moon, featuring six dancers that swoop and sway from controlled gestures to free flying momentum. E.E. Balcos’ duet, Forward/Rewind portrays a shadowy relationship filled with mystery and intrigue as it leaps forward and backward in time. Phasings, a minimalist, contemporary quartet by Eric Mullis, explores musical structures used by Steve Reich in his early compositions—accumulation, erasure, and phasing. Kristi Vincent Johnson presents When the Bough Breaks, a trio inspired by the cyclical nature and instability of codependent relationships. Lindsey Kelley Brewer premieres the solo that happened, now onward, in which a woman attempts to leave yesterday’s debris in the shadows and move forward towards a lighter and clearer tomorrow.
