Company dancers Kelly Van Damme, Ntara Curry, and Jen Neudorf performed the first version of a new work by Jackie Latendresse tentatively called Make Your Mark at the Works in Progress New Dance Series on June 29th. The new work features the trio of dancers, a variety of shoes and two large golden frames in an interesting portrait of the human condition. The full version of the work will be presented later this summer at the Mendel Art Gallery.
The company dancers also performed in a site specific work at the annual Back Alley Antics showing. The work – Untitled involved 3 large concrete barriers and ultimately the audience became the performers. A Lot of fun was had by all!
