Highlighting the power, passion, and versatility of the) dancers, BoSoma Dance Company’s 18th Season Fall Show 2021 will feature new work, as well as classic repertory, brought back to life:
Artistic Director and Choreographer Katherine Hooper's The Pursuit (2014) is about the work/life balance and the juggle of finding one's purpose within the hustle of building a career, job security and family.
One of BSD's signature works, Parachute, is a powerful display of explosive movement, spatial design, and 'skirtography'. Dressed in the exquisite costuming by Gloucester-based designer Jen Greeke, dancers grace the stage with a newly crafted opening section.
The newest work commissioned by cancer survivor Rose Flynn to create about her battle and recovery features company dancers Stephanie Boisvert and Courtney Costa. This piece, about a personal journey through a difficult time and the rise out of the darkest days, will offer a moment of intimate contemplation.
Guest choreographer and BDC dancer Tony Tucker will be premiering the final version of his two-part piece on the company for the first time under the stunning lights of BDC's resident lighting designer Matt Cost. Tucker's personal experience deeply inspires this work. In his words, it is "...about the extreme brutality from police towards people of color and the injustice of equality. My life matters."
To round out the evening of dance, BDC will perform Lindsey Leduc's energetically charged Lost it to Trying and Hooper's, Reflection, set to the classics of artist Billy Joel, evoking nostalgic memories for all who experience the journey.
Don't miss out on the opportunity to celebrate live dance coming back to the historic Larcom Theatre stage!
