This preview has been provided by the American Dance Festival.
Under the direction of Larry Keigwin, this electrifying contemporary dance company brings a bold and refreshing vision of dance that seethes with sensibility, wit, style, and heart and bridges the gap between artistry and entertainment. Their fourth visit to the ADF will include their newest work, Contact Sport, commissioned by the ADF. With Keigwin's signature athletically charged and vigorous movement, this work explores the continuously evolving and sometimes tumultuous relationships between four brothers. Originally commissioned by the ADF in 2004, Natural Selection navigates the theory of evolution from within a miniature world. The company will also perform 12 Chairs (2012) and Megalopolis (2009), a hyper-kinetic synthesis of contemporary and hip hop inspired by both fashion and the social behaviors of insect colonies. Keigwin himself will perform his newest solo, Panic (2012), that examines the tension and anxiety that builds within repetition and pattern, both physically and through sound.
