ADT: Tyranny of the Senses & New Work 2013
Tyranny of the Senses by Gilmer Duran
& New Work by Amy Seiwert
Premiered in Eugene and Anchorage on 2011 and inspired by Deepak Chopra's Age-less Body, Timeless Mind, this visually stunning work explores the interaction of the senses as methods of perception. Duran's choreography seeks to challenge preconceived ideas about human connectivity experimenting with sight, hearing, smell, balance & acceleration, touch, kinesthetic sense, pain, direction and temperature. Im-agery by digital artist John Park and music by Oregon-based composer and co-founder of Beta Collide, Brian McWhorter.
Also in the program, a brand new work by acclaimed choreographer Amy Seiwert. Named one of "25 choreographers to watch" by Dance Magazine and Artistic director of Amy Seiwert&aposs Imagery, her works have been featured in the repertory of leading ballet companies in New York, San Francisco, Atlanta, Colorado, Sacramento, Ohio, Austin, Milwaukee and Oakland. Her new work Monuments is her first commission for Alaska Dance Theatre with original music inspired by Alaska environments.
