This season’s AcroBAXers are focused on exploring “The Body.” The dancers have created an exciting array of choreography, costumes and lighting design. These works include Through the Inside, in which dancers twist and turn over, under and around each other following the journey of food through the body. Also, Spoken is an exploration of the organ that gives us voice. While helping each other defy gravity in challenging three-person partner acrobatics and dynamic momentum-driven lifts, the dancers express the interwoven nature of the vocal chords. And through energetic tumbling passes, partner flips and spacious balances, Whoosh explores the expanding and contracting of the lungs as they breath in and out.
Audiences can expect these and other works developed through individual and group collaborations by the students. These creations feature exciting partner acrobatics, energetic tumbling, and lots of physical challenge combined with a deeply-felt exploration of this theme using modern dance technique and compositional skills.
