The Creative Dance Center’s resident modern dance company, Kaleidoscope Dance Company, presents Kaleidoscope in Concert at the Broadway Performance Hall Mother’s Day weekend, May 9, 10, and 11. This rich and diverse show features new works by local and nationally recognized choreographers. Premieres are by Marlene Strang (Not Like Some -a lighthearted commentary on manners across different eras), James Brosnahan (Shout and Feel It – based on the style that emerged from Harlem and the Savoy Ballroom in the depression years all the way into the 1940’s), Angelica DeLashmette (Through Darkness Into Flight – inspiration taken from a poem by Guillaume Apollinaire), Debbie Gilbert and Joanne Petroff (Embodied Art – bringing the work of Klee, Singletary, and Lawrence to dancing life), and Kaleidoscope graduate Fionnuala Doyle Wade (Waking Up – which looks at human interactions, the positive and the negative). These new works and revivals highlight the dancers stylistic versatility and the vibrancy of modern dance. Revivals on the program include Forms Unfolding by Anna Mansbridge, a balletic modern piece set to the music of Vivaldi, Subsumed by Louisa Fish-Sadin, exploring group dynamics and the struggle for individuality, A Memory, a moving dance about the power of friendship by Kaleidoscope dancers Maya St. Sebastian and Tshedzom Tingkhye, Stars at Play by Anne Green Gilbert, and Across the Plains, choreographed by Kaleidoscope Dance Company, a joyous and touching piece that celebrates the spirit of American pioneers. Each performance will also feature a dance that premiered at this year’s Gift of Dance Concert. Kaleidoscope’s unique blend of talent, enthusiasm, and soul will delight and captivate audiences of all ages. Kaleidoscope in Concert celebrates the joy of dance with an exceptional balance of youth and professionalism. Kaleidoscope Dance Company is made up of young people ages 7-17.
