Blending modern dance and live music, Artists By Any Other Name’s “Elements Of”
explores fragmented and latent emotions hidden within the seemingly mundane.
The program juxtaposes
and commingles a diverse range of elements aimed at capturing a fleeting moment
of clarity and familiarity. Lights and shadows, movement and stillness, harmony
and discord, introspection and extrospection, fire and water, earth and air —
these diametric components play both in unison and opposition, always seeking
to glimpse the most complete and true essence of the whole.
The program also
features original choreography by New York-based female choreographers set to
contemporary minimalist music by mostly female composers. Mirrors and
flashlights create intensified moments of reflection, enlightenment, and
invisibility. Interweaving abstract expressions of the four classical elements
of Greek mythology, we aim to uncover elements of the world we perceive, of the
people and places we know, and of ourselves.
