One of many aspects I love most about modern dance is its capacity to connect people beyond boundaries of language, culture and other differences. And it moves people.
New York City-based Bill Young/Colleen Thomas & Dancers walk the talk, internationally speaking. Known for overseas exchanges, in recent years the company has featured dancers from Greece, Germany, Cape Verde, Venezuela, Albania and China.
As Contemporary Dance Theater’s first 2010-11 Guest Artist Series installment, Bill Young/Colleen Thomas & Dancers will present “Rein, Bellow” and their new work, “For Want (a circus)” at the Aronoff Center’s intimate Jarson-Kaplan Theater. Expect to see rich human qualities and charged emotional relationships play out in unexpected ways — performers float above the stage in harnesses, bounce off walls and break away from convention with physical daring.
Performances are 8:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday.
