Dance Shelter 2019
"showcases a slew of burgeoning talent . . . every bit as audacious, complex, unusual as audiences have come to expect"
Dance Shelter 2019 features bold, new and re-imagined contemporary and experimental dance works by the Chicago Moving Company; CMC artists-in-residence/noted choreographers Rachel Bunting/The Humans and Ayako Kato, and guest artist Jessie Young, Brooklyn, NY.
The concert features the latest installation of CMC's "Echo Project"--"a cool idea . . . (featuring) clean-lined choreography reminiscent of iconic post-modernists" (Furnans, SCD.com). In this, the third Echo--the solo, that was once a trio, becomes a duet for formidable performers Precious Jennings and Jasmine Mendoza. Spare and pure, the work plays out through simple yet not-so-simple movement and patterns. Wending through the space, the piece has a lovely import, weight, and mystery.
"Northern Shadow", a spanking-new duet by Kato with dancer Corinne Imberski, slips between what can be seen and the imagined (with music by Alvin Lucier, Jurg Frey). Bunting debuts her latest dance-world, imbued with "wild visual landscapes (and) . . . rich imagery (developed) through serious dancing" (Warnecke, Chicago Tribune). While guest, dance-raconteur Jessie Young advances a new solo full of sound and fury and signifying something. In Young's "smoke not fog" she considers her body as place for multiple realities and mythologies.
