For the past 11 years, CORE has advanced contemporary dance in Sacramento – see the new and concluding works by the directors of the company, celebrating the triumph of the human spirit.
An evening celebrating the history, growth, and impact of the company for the last decade. The show will contain two new full length works by Artistic Director Kelli Leighton and Assistant Artistic Director Jared Baker.
Kelli Leighton’s new work, inspired by “Warrior” by Segovia Amil, shows the resilience of the human spirit when confronted with the insurmountable challenges of life. We should embrace them, celebrate them, and wear them as our armor. No matter what mistakes we have made, or how much we have been burned, we will fly on with “Scorched Wings”.
“Carved in Fire”, by Jared Baker and set to the music of Bon Iver, depicts the process of a passion running thin. Through its timeline, the piece urges us to balance the responsibilities of life, while maintaining the spark that keeps us moving forward.
*Tickets available online or at the door.
