ViewPoint @ The Southern Theater: NOVEMBER 10 - 13
Alternative Motion Project returns to The Southern Theater to present the ViewPoint of 5 exciting + diverse choreographic visions. What do they have in common? The dynamic AMP company members Moving BIG as they thrill, inspire, and amaze with a physicality that doesn’t quit.
The Harvest (World Premiere: Nic Lincoln) is an introspective work, a non-linear and abstract piece that investigates one's relationship to others and themselves. A particularly personal piece for Lincoln, this duet is visually saturated with cultural references from the 1950's, 1970's and today.
Sunset Breakfast (World Premiere: Blake Nellis) is a piece about being alone in the desert, when the sun rises and sets and you're not sure which is which. It's about a true connection to nature, feeling powerful, feeling lost, searching for the magical moments that you once felt, and experiencing time like you experience the sun. It's also about the things we don't feel comfortable talking about. Experience this piece like you would a sunset: without judgment or narrative, enjoying the time it takes and the effort that change requires.
Picture Perfect (World Premiere: Darrius Strong) – Movement is all about perspective and Strong explores movement as a moving painting. When one looks at a piece of artwork, each individual feels different things and has a unique lens on the work. Images allow everyone to see a part of themselves that may or may not be completely clear. Behind every picture there is more than just one layer, just like life. Similarly, a dance work is never perfect but it is multi-layered. See what happens as this picture unfolds.

Heart’s Center (2013 - Kristin Howe) - Portraying a woman's journey through pregnancy, Heart’s Center explores the emotional and physical changes experienced when creating a life. This abstract representation exhibits the immense challenges as the body shifts through three distinct trimesters and ends with the intensity of the birth of a child.
#binge (2016 - Joanna Lees) follows a trio of dancers as they cycle through the highs and lows of the emotional and physical stages that come with binge-watching a TV show. This activity contradicts itself with feelings of pride & shame, connection & isolation, and gratification & regret, and has now become normal and even encouraged in our modern society. Includes video projections and some adult language.
