Hannah Kahn Dance Company is collaborting with local choreographer, Maureen Breeze, to create and present “There and Back Again”, a series of performances including free shows in public transportation spaces:
- DIA on Friday August 25
- The plaza in front of Union Station at noon and again at 1:00 on Friday September 15 (rain date is Sept. 22)
- Republic Plaza (corner of Tremont St. and the 16th St. Mall) at noon and again at 1:00 on Wednesday, September 20 (rain date is Sept. 27),
and culminating in two performances at the Cleo Parker Robinson Theater on November 10 and 11, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. Since the theme of these programs will highlight travel and transportation imagery, we will bring the project to the public in the places they pass through during their daily commutes. By capturing the ebbs and flows of energy, the dancers’ movement will parallel the beautifully organized chaos that exists as we participate in the mass migration of daily routes and routines. Choreography is often about about the anticipation of going, the sensation of separating, and the joy of returning. We will capture coming and going through both abstract and more literal expressions of travelers’ journeys.
Choreography is always about “traffic” patterns, flight and mobility. Interactions in life are represented through choreographic creations. What would happen if you took the later train? Or looked up from your smart phone to chat with the person next to you? What would …. Happen?
We hope you will join us for “There and Back Again”!
