Journey through different musical dimensions, guided by classical and contemporary movements and music of Benjamin Britten, Philip Glass and Axiom Quartet.Uptown Dance Company partners with Houston’s Axiom Quartetfor two performances of “Hidden Dimensions,” a program of three newdance works all performed to live music. The performances, which takeplace at Uptown Dance Centre, feature music from three Phillip GlassString Quartets, the first Cello Suite by Benjamin Britten, andselections from Axiom Quartet’s upcoming debut album (“Axiom – Momentsof Truth,” release date April 13, 2018, Parma Recordings).
Choreographer Andre Silva, current principal dancer with Texas BalletTheater, returns to Uptown Dance Company with his newest creation, Hidden Dimension. Mr. Silva explores a narrative approach to his choreographic process,creating a work that portrays a woman caught in a dream realm.
Music from Axiom’s new album inspired Artistic Director Beth Gulledge-Brown’snewest pas de deux, titled At first sight. Ms. Gulledge-Browndescribes her work as an example of “art imitating life.” Guest dancerRupert Edwards returns to perform in this new work. Houston audienceswill get the rare opportunity to hear one of the solo cello suites byBenjamin Britten in a live performance.
Axiom cellist Patrick Moore andchoreographer Alex Pandiscio extracted themes in the work thatresonated with them both – fate, separation, trauma, love, fear, andtriumph. These themes form the basis for the programmatic work, Entanglement.
