The primary tension in Giselle is the question of acceptance: will Albrecht accept Giselle? will she accept him?
In the Time Before I knew You: Dances of Making Contact is a shared dance concert by Human Landscape Dance of Washington DC and Santa Fe artists Sarah Ashkin and Brittany Delany, Sophia Rog, and Amina Re. The dances share a theme of first meetings and relationships changing over time. Human Landscape Dance will premiere “Aurora’s Dream,” and “Persephone and Demeter;” Sophia Rog will premiere "The River Here and There." "Aurora's Dream" takes place within the unconscious mind of Sleeping Beauty during her long wait to meet her prince. "The River Here and There" introduces one river to another. In the Time Before I Knew You: Dances of Making Contact opens at 8pm on Saturday August 9, 2014, at the Railyard Performance Center, 1611 Paseo de Peralta in Santa Fe NM.
Participants in our CONTACT IMPROVISATION WORKSHOP are also invited to perform in In the Time Before I Knew You. (Workshop cost covers performance admission.)
In the Time Before I knew You: Dances of Making Contact will be presented one night only. Space is limited. This 1-hour performance is followed by an open contact improvisation jam, so come dressed to dance! Produced in association with the Railyard Performance Center.
