CHRISTOPHER WATSON DANCE COMPANY presents

the premiere of

DIVE

 

and 4 additional new dance works

TWO SHOWS ONLY

Saturday & Sunday, May 5 & 6, 2018

 

The Christopher Watson Dance Company presents the premiere of DIVE, a dance work exploring resilience of the human spirit in the face of adversity, Saturday and Sunday, May 5 and 6 at the JSB TEK BOX Theater in the Cowles Center for Dance,

528 Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis. Performances are Saturday at 7:30 PM and Sunday at 2:00 PM. Tickets are available via Brown Paper Tickets at www.brownpapertickets.com/

 


The catalyst for the creation of DIVE was the passing of Michael Eastman, Christopher Watson’s husband of 40 years. The abstract work is a response to the process of reckoning with the cycle of life and death.

 

Other dance works on the program are by company choreographers Becky Heist, Sarah LaRose-Holland (Artistic Director of Kinetic Evolutions), and guest artist Daniel McCusker. The program will include screenings of two dance films: Catch and Release, by Christopher Watson and Close Reveal: An Homage to Hilary Harris by Becky Heist.

 

The Christopher Watson Dance Company is a diverse, multi-generational company with members who are in their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. This is the company’s 27th season of performances.

Testimonials

Audiences from the Minnesota Fringe Festival say Kinetic Evolutions is:

                   “I grew increasingly captivated”

                  “I look forward to seeing more from this company”

                  “I love the movement, artistry and discipline”

                  “you don’t need to be a modern dance fan to love this show”

                  “lively and energy charged performance”

                  “the dancers were professional, vibrant and very talented”

                  “creative, clever”

                  “performed with great skill and love by a group of very talented dancers”

                  “highly recommended for fans of modern dance”

                  “we’re hooked!”


Dance critic Lightsey Darst describes Sarah’s choreography, “LaRose’s (work) shocks with brave ambition…LaRose at once elevates our littleness to quiet nobility and humanizes this high music (Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata), calling attention to the arduous steps of its structure.”

 

Dance critic Caroline Palmer from the Star Tribune says "The program includes the witty, pratfall-driven quintet “Stuck in 5” and the rock-and-rhythm inspired “Visceral Experiences,” featuring propulsive live music from the band B-Line."
