    Kathy Dunn Hamrick: In Situ

    After two years of having them perform on water and in the middle of a big field, what has acclaimed choreographer Kathy Dunn Hamrick conjured for her troupe back at Cafe Dance? What sort of kinetic visions will be visited upon those attending? "I’m into movement invention," says Hamrick, "which means I go into the studio and investigate new ways of moving. If you want, look closely for detailed, complex, sometimes hidden movements and a high contrast between dynamics – like super-fast and super-slow. You might also notice that I break things up and then re-group." Modern dance, then, as this innovative company rocks it. And it's, um, what's it like? Says the maestra: "It’s up to you to decide if my work is funny, poignant, moving, odd, eerie, disturbing, beautiful or all of the above."
    Dec. 3-5. Fri., 7pm; Sat., 5 & 7pm; Sun., 3pm. $15-20.
