Post-Performance Discussion: May 3

GDC’S Spring Season presents new works by Senior Company Director Amy Miller and Guest Choreographer Bryan Arias.

Amy Miller: Valence

Valence calls on the chemistry term describing the inherent bonding capacity of atoms to reflect our constant potential to create connections in our daily lives transforming how we see ourselves, each other and the world. Composer Peter Swendsen’s original score draws on a broad palette of sonic choices, including many related to human, mechanical and environmental “breath” in this work originally created on Cleveland-based GroundWorks DanceTheater.

bryan arias: One Thousand Million Seconds

An abstract story of society and human existence. The work shows the essential humanity of the characters and addresses themes of life, existence and happiness. Stories represent a series of disconnected vignettes that together interrogate facets of modern life. Through countless aspects of existence, reality and time. The work wonders through human destinies – A trip that shows us the beauty of a single moment, the pettiness of others, the humor and tragedy that is in us, life’s magnificence as well as the frailty of humanity.
