Four nationally renowned local choreographers will present an evening of new dances featuring performances from some of the most illustrious professional dancers in the region. Paul Matteson, a Bessie award winner and recipient of this year’s prestigious Massachusetts Cultural Council Choreography Fellowship, will premiere slow slip down. With live music by Ian Stahl and Ben Muller, this septet explores “now time” connection, sparse melody, and the sensual edge of mutually recognized touch. Acclaimed NYC choreographer/performer Aretha Aoki - who currently splits her life between NYC and Noho – will present zero, a re-imagining of her 2014 piece The Multiple, in which ghosts appear and the murmurings of past, present and future leak into the space of performance. Zero reflects Aoki's commitment to a rigorously intuitive process of making and the juxtaposition of seemingly unrelated elements. Acclaimed veteran Valley choreographers Terese Freedman and Jim Coleman will premiere their new duet under, a collage of image and action exploring aging intimacy, exhausted routines and taken-for-granted communions, with video and sound to orient and sharpen the dislocations.

A collage of image and action, this new duet explores themes of domestic life - aging intimacy, exhausted routine, silly exploits, taken-for-granted communions, . . . video and sound are used to orient and sharpen the dislocations.
