Palladium Live! Program

Immure

Choreographer:
Helen French

Dancer:
Helen French

Rehearsal Assistant:
Kellie Harmon

Music:
Hildegard von Bingen performed by Maya Beiser

Lighting Designer:
Christopher Spatafora

Program Notes:
Immure is inspired in part by the life of Hildegard von Bingen, a 12th Century nun, healer, theologian, and composer. She was enclosed in a monastery as a child and had prophetic visions her whole life. She was formally canonized Saint Hildegard in 2012.

Cogs in the Machine

Choreographer:
Christina Acosta

Music:
by Atra Aeterna

Dancers:
Dwayne Schuenemen and Sea Lea

Program Notes:
Cogs in the Machine reveals an apocalyptic realm where even after life on earth has ended, machine parts continue to move and flourish.

The choreography challenges dancers to jolt, twist, hook, and magnetically partner in machine-like ways into calibration.

Excerpt from Journey to Freedom

This piece contains mature subject matter. 

Choreographer:
Charlotte Johnson

Dancer:
Charlotte Johnson

Spoken Word Performers:
Deven Filer and Stefanie Maisonet

Drummer:
Luis Alicea 

Program Notes:
This excerpt from Journey to Freedom sheds light on the real issue of domestic violence within our communities. From start to finish it displays the history of mental illnesses that our military veterans suffer from and how that illness can bleed over to those we love the most.

Although this excerpt doesn’t showcase how these individuals come to a place of peace, the scenes definitely will hit home for so many and hopefully will leave you in suspense and ready to see more of what Journey to Freedom is all about.

Dancers:
Erin Cardinal and Brian Fidalgo II

Text Written by:
Nancy Stark Smith & David Koteen

Narrated by:

when the petals fall

Choreographer:
Alexander Jones

projectALCHEMY Dancers:
Carissa Bishop, Nicholas Daulton-Crotty, and Kirsten Standridge

Music:
PYANOOK “Impromptu Reggae” and Philip Glass “Etude No.6: I. Etude No.6”

Costumer:
Iky Standridge 

Lighting Designer:
Christopher Spatafora

Program Notes:
It starts simple at first. Eye contact. A gentle nod. Body language. The conversation consists of gestures, all invitations to further the conversations. Then comes the pact. The agreement. Consent. A budding connection blooms into a ravishing relationship. Cycles spin chaotically in beautiful rhythmic patterns, culminating in unified release. The petals fall gentle in the glow of the sun.
