Houston Contemporary Dance Company will present "Propel" for one evening as a part of the Red Rock Dance Festival. This full evening of dance will include a piece from this season titled, I Remember… which is a socially dis-danced work created for the 4 company members and Guest Artist, Shantelle Rush and dancer and Choreographer, Robbie Moore. As individuals forming one group conscience, they recount memories, draw on difficult feelings and convey experiences from the unparalleled year 2020. The piece also features a short film sharing the same title as imagined by Lauren Berthelot. Viola choreographed by Thai American guest choreographer Keerati Jinakunwiphat with music by composers Benjamin Britten, Philip Glass, Osvaldo Golijov, as well as a new work from Artistic Director, Marlana Doyle and a world premiere duet from Christian Denice will be presented.
Houston Contemporary Dance Company’s primary focus is to provide Houstonians and audiences all around the United States with opportunities to view world class contemporary concert dance and engage with the artists involved, including dancers, choreographers and designers.
This is the culminating event of the Red Rock Dance Festival here in southern Utah! Choreographers have come from all over to have their work presented and adjudicated. The Judges will choose the best of the best (top 8-10) for this Finals Showcase! You will also see a collaboration piece between Houston Contemporary and St. George Dance Companies, as well as two repertory pieces taught in the 3-day workshop! A $500 Judges' Choice Award will be given and you get to vote for the Audience Choice Award (also $500). And, you will see the winners from the Red Rock Screen Dance Film Festival. Reception to follow.
