“Body Beats” will bring together local talent, Martin Dosh, James Sewell Ballet dancers, Element boxers and community members for a one-of-a-kind modern ballet. This collaborative work plays off the neurological and physical phenomenon that occurs when distinctly different movements occur within the same dancer or musician using different parts of the body (upper and lower, left and right) in different rhythms.
NYC-based Gabrielle Lamb, an accomplished performer with Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal and Morphoses dance companies, continues her upward momentum as a choreographer with new work, “Thaw,” that examines the beauty of the winter with the textural elements inspired by the recent polar vortex.
