BoSoma presents PUSH with guest Contrapose Dance
April 23 - April 24, 2010
This performance highlights two of Boston’s professional contemporary dance companies. BoSoma presents high energy, athletic and stimulating contemporary dance performances with its own signature of vibrant, vital movement. BoSoma will premiere three new works. The Dinner Table, choreographed by Katherine Hooper, explores the ever changing and sometimes lost American ritual of sitting down to dinner as a family for a time to reflect, connect and decompress from a busy day. The company will also premier BiLine. Set in full-length skirts, eight dancers celebrate the pure joy of movement. This piece is upbeat and lively, inspired by several world dance forms such as African as well as tango and salsa. BoSoma will again perform their full company piece PUSH, noted by the Boston Globe as being “vigorously athletic and artistically sculptural”. Courtney Peix founded Contrapose Dance in 2008 out of a desire to present new, exciting and entertaining works that engage and thrill audiences. The company aims to bring a fresh energy to the dance scene in Boston and beyond by serving as a platform for innovative choreographers. Contrapose Dance presents contemporary works designed to plumb deep emotions and celebrate the exhilaration of pure movement. For this performance, Contrapose Dance has commissioned three new works by acclaimed Boston Choreographers Gianni Di Marco, Marcus Schulkind, and Nicole Pierce.
