Antaeus Dance premiered select excerpts from its ongoing evening-length collaboration Prospect & Refuge at Cleveland Public Theatre at the close of DanceWorks 2010. The performances were well received by the public and the work was reviewed by Plain Dealer critic Donald Rosenberg. The dancers are on a well-deserved break before preparing for our next performance. The Company will make a guest appearance at the trideaDANCE concert in Tiffin, Ohio at the historic Ritz Theatre Saturday, May 23rd at 7:30pm.
Once that is complete, the Company will continue work on the Prospect & Refuge project, heading out to Pennsylvania for more filming. Cynthia Penter's first film, Cleave, will soon be available for online viewing. It was a great pleasure to work with dancers Amy Notley and Desmond Davis again! The last time I worked with them together was on a project called Burn the Heavens. Also, new to the group was guest artist Sara Lawrence-Sucato. It was wonderful to work with her as well. All three will be continuing to work on the project, as well as Amy Compton, Marissa Gloriosso, Heather Koniz and Sherri Mills. The company is preparing to say farewell to founding member Shanna Sheline.
More on P & R as it happens. More on Shanna as I am able to speak of her without being overcome with emotion. Coming up: Summer Offerings.
