Fremont Danceworks, a troupe of accomplished teen dancers will perform works by leading Seattle-area choreographers in its March spring show, “XpOsed.” All the
performers attend Dance Fremont!, a ballet and modern-dance school, a staple in the Fremont neighborhood for more than 15 years.
A play off of the word, “exposed,” the show’s title reflects the themes audiences will see throughout the evening and matinee performances: an examination of the human spirit, its resilience and vulnerability, presented in a minimalist, black-box theater setting. “XpOsed” features the work of hiphop and contemporary-dance choreographer, Markeith Wiley, who has created a piece titled “Retort” that depicts an all-girl street scene.
Vivian Little, former principal dancer with Pacific Northwest Ballet, will re-stage her 2006 work, “Bugged”: Young ladies meet a pesky mosquito, portrayed by a mischievous ballerina en pointe, and try to run her off with the help of bug spray in this humorous ballet. Brenna Monroe-Cook, formerly of the New-York based Limón Dance Company, has choreographed a new piece set to Mozart music titled “apéritif – digestif”.
Mary Kay Bisignano-Vadino, Dance Fremont! faculty member with a M.F.A. in Choreography/Performance from U.C.L.A. has created a work featuring Danceworks graduating senior, Amina Kapusuzoglu.
Finally, Mary Reardon, Danceworks co-founder and former soloist with the Carl Ratliff Dance Theater, will present “Another Day,” which explores the rambling of what goes on in one’s head during the course of yet another 24 hours.
Performances will be Friday and Saturday, March 23 and 24, and March 30 and 31 at the Dance Fremont Studio. Tickets are $12/advance; $15/door. Order your tickets by phone: 206.633.0812.
