CORE Contemporary and Aerial Dance
CORE Contemporary & Aerial Dance will present Mutual Resonance, a 40-minute nonstop program consisting of thirteen aerial and dance vignettes that portray a variety of relationships and interactions reflecting associations found in personal, social and environmental situations. The performance is enhanced through visual landscapes by incorporating projection mapping, animation and film. The company will perform on aerial silks, slings, lyra, trapeze and bungee.
Joining UGA student artists the Staibdance company and guest artists will share the evening program performing excerpts from 2016's critically acclaimed work moat. Artistic Director, George Staib reflects on his memories of immigrating from Iran to a small Pennsylvania town during the Iran Hostage Crisis. Fueled by heightened anti-Middle Eastern sentiment in the United States, some locals reacted with hostility, throwing tear gas into the family's yard and bullying the kids at school. The work raises questions of self-protection.
