Producer/Director, Jodi Kaplan presents “In The Blood”, a dance film which features the theatrical platform of the boxing ring and the intense movement of fighting. Kaplan brings a choreographic sensibility to this experimental short that explores the “dance” of boxing. “In The Blood” exposes the brute physicality of a sport that pushes its participants to their utmost limits, to the edges of physical force – one that, through its severity, captures the inexplicable will to live.
"Enough" by Sukie Keita is a modern work inspired by Kathryn Dunham with West African and Haitian folkloric influence. The dance signifies an examination of one’s feeling they are not enough to face their life and the world at large on a nearly daily basis. It's about finding strength in community and the self to move beyond scarcity into abundance. Performing this quintet will be Kimi Eisele, Jennifer Eldred, Cavetta Green, Yarrow King and Sukie Keita, with live percussion by Frederik Malter and additional music and vocals by Mamani Keita, Sukie Keita and Mark Minelli.

Bunker’s newest aerial/modern group work is entitled “Contact”. Whether on the ground or in the air the dancers; Aja Kanub, Sukie Keita, Danielle Jones and Annie Bunker seek to touch; sometimes with actual physicality while at other times by an invisible line through space.
“Points of Origin” by Bunker is a continued exploration of light moving through space with sculptural, dramatic and playful sensibilities. Inspired while pondering a life-long wonder about the speed of light in the universe and how much we actually see, how little we know and how big and simultaneously small everything is at the same time… Performed to an original score by Laura Lee Coles a founding member of Population of Noise of Vancouver, B.C. “Points of Origin” will feature dancers, Aja Knaub, Danielle Jones and Sukie Keita.
Our performances are audience friendly; all the works are suitable for humans of all ages. The doors open one half hour before the start of the show.
