INSIDE/OUT includes a rich cross section of the community, featuring both professional dancers and community dancers with and without disabilities, singers, musicians and narrators. Works on the program explore relationships between paradoxical aspects of human experience, asking audiences to reflect on how they encounter and reconcile such ironies in their own lives.
Sharon Took-Zozaya’s SELKIE TIDES, inspired by Scottish and Irish Selkie stories about magical shape-shifting seals, is much more than a dance. Rather, it’s a multi-faceted piece of dance theatre that includes able-bodied and disabled dancers; acclaimed gaelic singer Mary Mc Laughlin and her chorus; live traditional and contemporary folk music; Mathew Schreiber’s original recorded score; original spoken text; and projected paintings by Andrew Purchin.

Selkie legends are archetypal metaphors for intersections between the seen and unseen in many areas of life. Many of them represent a way to integrate loss and longing, as well as celebrating relationships between the wild nature both within and also outside us.

HE SAT DOWN BESIDE HER, Donna Von Joo-Tornell’s new work, explores the dark side of nursery rhymes, contrasting their apparent innocence with the fear and danger they often represent. It includes a monologue written and performed by Linda Puliatch and original music by Scott Stobbe and others.
