The first weekend opens with Gu Jiani from Southern China with a shadowy and mysterious work and Khambatta Dance Company performing a new work in their half way mark of a ten year dance project exploring the American psyche.

Gu Jiani (Beijing, China) studied ballet and classical Chinese dance, blending both in her own movement language. Her ominous work Right & Left fuses aggressive precision with an arresting mix of projection and light to examine our oldest questions: Why do we love, and how do we stop it from destroying who we are?

Khambatta Dance Company (Seattle, WA)  presents a new untitled work continuing its exploration of haunting psycho-social themes of our times with the fifth work in a series of ten, a half way point that explores perceptual tainting of a polarized nation.

The second program of the opening weekend hosts Tabea Martin (Switzerland) in an uncanny exploration of the 100 best love songs EVER and Rachel Barker (Charlotte, NC) with a kitchy but intimate dance work.

Tabea Martin (Basel, Switzerland) perform Field, a (near) naked exploration of the 100 best love songs, during which its raucus characters fight fiercely for love, for affection, for recognition. Startlingly athletic and dynamic, this trio is a battlefield.

Rachel Barker (Charlotte, NC) offers a journey through disparate emotional states and happenings in her new work, Welcome. At once humorous and desperate, Welcome explores themes of vulnerability and "human-ness", while questioning the roles of performer and the boundaries of the fourth wall.
