“I love suddenly finding myself alone in an elevator, with no one around to bump into or wonder what the heck I’m doing. When the elevator doors close, I may have only a few moments, but my arms swipe and curve, my spine arches and folds, and my legs swing and step. This is how I really feel … I want to create dances that connect us with the intricacy of the present moment through movement that is as potent as it is vibrant.” – Suzanne Beahrs
Suzanne Beahrs Dance presents a full evening of dance on March 27-29, 2014 at 8 pm at Danspace Project, located inside St. Mark’s Church, 131 East 10th Street, NYC 10003. Tickets are $20 General ($17 Early Bird if ordered before 3/6) / $15 Danspace Members and are available at danspaceproject.org.
Amid, a new hour-long dance piece by Suzanne Beahrs Dance, is a vigorous representation of how a personal trial can take audiences on convoluted journeys through pain, love, fear, loss, joy, and resilience.
Presented as part of DANCE: Access, a self-production series administered by Danspace Project that serves independent choreographers and dance companies, the work for five women (Suzanne Beahrs, Sarah Hillmon, Julia Jurgilewicz, Celine Syslo, Madeline Wilcox) expresses how we understand and shape our own stories and is a celebration of the exquisite power in our broken, impermanent selves.
Choreographer Suzanne Beahrs makes dances designed to engage viewers on both small and large scales, drawing the eye to a delicate gesture and then back out to a sweeping group of leaping, twirling dancers, propelling through space along spiraling, intersecting pathways. The company’s mission is to share Suzanne’s artistic vision that investigates and celebrates the impermanent human experience through kinetically driven modern dance.
For those of you not in New York City, Gia On The Move found a compilation of Suzanne’s “to date” dance projects. They are incredibly worth watching. It’s a full 10 minutes and a performance unto itself. Suzanne Beahrs “FULL ON”… In the meantime, find this company on FACEBOOK and like their page. I just did!
