Berkeley Dance Project 2017

Performing Arts - Dance | April 21 | 8-10 p.m. |  Zellerbach Playhouse

 Department of Theater, Dance & Performance Studies

Inspired by the theme “Digging Deep,” Berkeley Dance Project 2017 offers a physical exploration of communication—between humans, within the natural world, and in the places where the two collide.

Guest choreographer Krista DeNio, artistic director of Krista DeNio >> Moving Ground, debuts “Network,” a new piece of ensemble-devised dance theater inspired by systems of communication and confinement in the human and plant world.

Continuing these themes of communication and survival, choreographer and TDPS alumnus James Graham, artistic director of the San Francisco-based James Graham Dance Company will be presenting "Meta Morphic," a new work that explores the concepts of earth, fire, air, and water. His new work looks at our human relationships to these elements.

Both pieces explore multiple processes of communication: verbal, non-verbal, felt, visual, and sensed, revealing the deep layers of connection we have to each other and our world. Ultimately "Digging Deep" asks: What sustains us? What destroys us? What makes us feel connected while we are alive?
