Two intrepid and beautiful movers team up with a dance film icon in a physically stunning and viruotic new dance piece. Former Merce Cunningham dancers Rashaun Mitchell and Silas Riener provide the precise and powerful choreography, which is mixed and projected live by longtime Cunningham collaborator and dance film trailblazer Charles Atlas, resulting in a vision of tilted perspectives and up-close visions of bodies in motion. You've never seen movement in quite this way before.

16/17 Season Artists | Kristen Kosmas/Paul Willis/Peter Ksander Jun 30, 2016

by Erin

Seattle poet/dreamer/visionary Kristen Kosmas attempts to create a utopia with the help of director Paul Willis and the design skills of Peter Ksander. The People's Republic of Valerie is a brand-new play inspired by comic books, the dharma, philosophy, and the recent and ongoing onslaught of horrific world events. Featuring Kosmas' fluid and gorgeous text, this part boot-camp space travel memoir also acts as a how-to manual for the layperson to realize a paradise. (Even if it is in your own mind.)

Choreographer Heather Kravas flips the script on gender roles and perceptions of beauty. Nine male-identifying performers work in unison around a series of daunting and demeaning tasks, confronting the complexities that arise when male conformity is practiced and enforced. Originally set on nine female performers, this updated version forces the performers and the audience to search for new meanings in beauty and gender roles.

Portuguese Renaissance man (theater, film, TV, dance) makes his Seattle debut with a profound and revolutionary piece centered around the memorization of a Shakespeare sonnet in real time. Rodrigues aids the willing soldiers (audience members!) in memorization with help from poet Boris Pasternak, sci-fi writer Ray Bradbury, literary critic George Steiner and his own grandmother.  Battling the ever-present threat of fascism with poetry, this emotionally moving and direct piece only ends when all the soldiers know the words by heart.
