Seattle Dance Project

Recommended Posts

Julie Tobiason and Tim Lynch's relatively new professional company the Seattle Dance Project (SDP) is giving its second major program this coming week. As in their first program, Project One, they will be doing 4 new works: done by up and coming choreographers. In Project Two we will see works by: Kiyon Gains, Heidi Vierthaler, Edwaard Liang, and Maureen Whiting. As I see it, SDP's niche is to extend the territory of classical ballet training into the contemporary sphere -- sometimes with clear classical aspects, sometimes only rooted in classical, and sometimes far a field. All the dancers (10 of them) are highly trained: some from the ballet side (e.g., PNB, Forsythe Company), and some from the modern side (e.g., Maureen Whiting Company), but all with impressive classical roots.

If Project One was any indication, Project Two promises to be a fascinating look at what intense classically trained professional dancers can do when freed to express themselves in a more modern idiom.
