Hildegard von Bingen performed by Maya Beiser
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
by Atra Aeterna
Dwayne Schuenemen and Sea Lea
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.
Spoken Word Performers:
Deven Filer and Stefanie Maisonet
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.
An improvisational performance conceived by Erin Cardinal and Brian Fidalgo II with artistic collaboration and direction by Robin Gordon and Michael Foley

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