2020 Annual Season
February 21st and 22nd
The Dance Center of Columbia College
World Premiers by
Ivy Baldwin (NY) Ammonite
Joanna Read (Chicago) BAD BUNNY
Ammonite, by NY-based choreographer Ivy Baldwin, is a new work for Same Planet Performance Project. Ammonite is a companion to Baldwin's recent site-specific performance, Quarry, for Manitoga / The Russel Wright Design Center (Garrison, NY). The work will carry the concerns and questions raised by Quarry–the steady destruction of the natural world. Ammoniteincludes an original score by long-time Ivy Baldwin Dance collaborator Justin Jones.
BAD BUNNY, by Joanna Rosenthal, tangles with the boundaries of consent. The dancers are cast amidst a forest of large abstract trees, framing consent as being wild territory. Bad Bunny places five dancers in both the human and animal world, exploring ideas of boundaries and permission, accepting of terms and conditions, knowingly and unknowing.
Collaborations include set by SAIC graduate, Nick Bamford, music by former Columbia College graduate Erica Ricketts and long term collaborator and costume designer, Vin Reed.
