This month’s artists:

Here Now Dance Collective

HNDC’s developing new work – BURSTNOW emerges from a desire to bridge two aesthetics that HNDC has been straddling. In the beginning of their inception HNDC/ Fletcher’s work was athletic, exuberant, very physical…lately their work has been abstract, installation based and physically stark. Now HNDC is adventuring and evolving; looking for balance between the light and dark sides of humanity and a marriage between the very physical, “dancy” world and the more abstract. BURSTNOW isan excitingexperiment in the growing and defining of HNDC’s aesthetic.

Malinda LaVelle’s Project Thrust

Using five women, Project Thrust’s new work, Urge, explores various psychological states in heterosexual relationships and the entanglement of food and lust. We all need and are constantly searching for ways to satisfy our burning desire for connection and comfort — whether it’s to each other, a place, a substance, or a feeling. So what happens when we fail to fulfill our hunger? Vice versa, what does it mean to be too full?Rebecca Alson-Milkman

In a new solo, Alson-Milkman combines the two interests that have driven her professional career: making socially relevant dances and practicing a rigorousbone-based alignment technique. She sources her own body’s accumulated experience of loss, giving birth, emotional trauma and illness as a lens to reflect on both political engagement and anatomical connections. Showing the last of four sections, Alson-Milkman moves towards resolution by exploring the connection between the heart and the pelvis.
