ALYCE FINWALL'S DANCE COUNCIL
Alyce Finwall's Dance Council presents Persephone, an original and unorthodox adaptation of the Greek myth that takes the viewer on a visually arresting and surreal journey through a combination of movement, puppetry, sound, and video. Finwall's theatrical choreography is combined with original live music by guitarist-composer Jindra and an interpretation of the writings of Roger Wissbaum.

DYLAN SKYBROOK
Dylan Skybrook's 1000 Ways is a quilt of dance, text, and imagery that investigates gestation and mobility. Using incisive physical theater, Skybrook asks us to consider both physical and psychological locomotion through stories about motorcycles, songs about Popeye, and dances with winches, ropes, and wheels. 1000 Ways is a funny and ecstatic consideration of the need for speed.
