Beth Soll & Company in a Concert of Three New Dances
December 11 - December 12, 2010
This December, DANCE PROJECTS, INC. will present Beth Soll & Company in a concert of three Boston premieres by noted choreographer, Beth Soll, who played an active role in the Boston dance scene from 1971-1997. The concert will take place at the Julie Ince Thompson Theatre in the Dance Complex in Cambridge, MA on Saturday, December 11 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, December 12 at 2 p.m.
For her first formal Boston concert since 1997, Soll and her company will present "Restless Geometry" (2010), "Tribute" (world premiere), and "Disclosure"(2010). Choreographer Beth Soll, described by critic Thea Singer (The Boston Phoenix) as “. . something of an alchemist [who] takes the dross of everyday life and turns it into the equivalent of spun gold, ” has created a concert that refers eloquently to the vital interaction of the personal and the objective. Within the perfect geometry of the French formal gardens, 18th century citizens frolicked, lusted, and plotted the deaths of others. Inspired by this juxtaposition of human fallibility and mathematical perfection, Beth Soll has choreographed "Restless Geometry", a work for seven very human dancers, who wrestle with the mathematical constraints of both the shapes they create and the sublime structure of music from the 17th and 18th centuries. Also on the program are two new solos. "Disclosure" is an introspective solo for Soll herself to the dramatic sounds of Stuart Dempster, Pauline Oliveros, and Panaiotis. In her premiere of "Tribute", with references to approaches and movements from earlier eras, Soll speaks directly to the audience in fragments from many different languages about the frustrations and joys of the human attempt to communicate. Performing with Soll in this concert are Kimberly Almquist, Randy Burd, Victoria Dombroski, Lara Gemmiti, Lindsey Miller, Manuel Sandridge, and Tamara Saari. Lighting design is by David Haan.
