APEX Choreographer Showcase

Wonderful performances by Lauren Wolter, Yoshimura Chikako, and other dancers last night. Peridance’s APEX Choreographer Showcase continues today at 4pm and 7:30pm. More info and tickets at Peridance Capezio Center. Go check them out!

Love the gorgeous dancing by the Hutchinson Collective and Lauren. I’ve seen the choreography “Days of the Open Hand” before, but the uplifting emotion that the movements inspire (accompanied by the soothing voice of George Michael) still gets to me every time.

Finally saw the expressive Chikako perform in a piece that reflects on ourselves as young adults — the longing for a home but also the desire to go out, challenge, and prove ourselves.

Other works tonight include: “Libertango” dramatic Argentine tango on pointe shoes (theatrically and technically!). “We the Artists” exploring the lives of the creative class through the metaphor of riding the New York subway. “T(i)nderness” a fun dance theatre about online dating.

Bravos to all the dancers. Thanks for a wonderful evening. I sadly can’t make the Sunday programs, but go see the show!
