Pamela Pietro & Michael Foley
February 15 @ 7:00pm
February 16 @ 7:00pm

Michael Foley Dance will be premiere a new half-evening length dance work, Persephone in Hell, as part of Sarasota Contemporary Dance’s “In the Studio” series. Persephone in Hell juxtaposes the Greek myth about the subjugation of a woman’s will in order to bring about the change of seasons with a contemporary look at female power and agency. Foley will be joined on stage by dancers Heidi Brewer, Danielle Frost, Abigail Hinson and Justice Rodriguez.  Selected arias from operas composed by George Frideric Handel, sung by Nathalie Stutzman will underscore the dance.


Rosanna Tavarez - Hybrids of Plants and of Ghosts
March 15 @ 7:00pm
March 16 @ 7:00pm

Visceral movement is beautifully executed by two performers in Rosanna Tavarez’ visually striking dance theater work inspired by the stamina and spirit of her grandmother, an influential matriarch who was a mother of seven, a street vendor, an immigrant and a fighter. With poetic interviews and movement, they evoke a beloved figure lost to Alzheimer’s.
