ROSY SIMAS AND BARAKA DE SOLEIL
Choreographer-dancers Rosy Simas and Baraka de Soleil present their newest collaborative effort, Residue. Reflecting their exploration of cultural, spiritual, and ancestral memory, Residue celebrates the personal histories and individual artistic styles of both choreographers as they work toward creating a new language of dance. Rosy Simas is on the Web at www.rosysimas.com.

GARNER GUTIERREZ-GARNER DANCE
The complementary choreographic team of Garner Gutierrez-Garner Dance unveils two pieces. With I Echo, Brad Garner fashions new movement composition to six piano works by George Winston, revealing the personal statement hidden within the ornamented structure of Winston's work. With Riding the Melt, Cynthia Gutierrez-Garner blends the lines between formal concert jazz dance and her interpretation of contemporary club funk.
