Antipodes is a new evening by renowned dancer, choreographer, and teacher, Douglas Dunn featuring design by Mimi Gross, an original score performed live by Steven Taylor & Laura Brenneman, and lighting by Carol Mullins. Dunn’s Dancers include: Jules Bakshi, Alexandra Berger, Douglas Dunn, Grazia Della-Terza, Emily Pope, Paul Singh, Jin Ju Song-Begin, Jake Szczypek, Timothy Ward, and Christopher Williams.

In Dunn’s newest work, he asks: “If we could reach our obverse, would she be complementary? If we could see ourselves from behind, or look out of the backs of our heads, would our minds flip?” Antipodes traces a straight line, or an arc, between two distant places. The design by Mimi Gross and the music by Steven Taylor include what Dunn calls “internal oppositions.” The pathways of design, music and dancing run parallel, crisscross, or entangle.

The Thursday, February 2 performance will be followed by a discussion with Douglas Dunn and collaborators Mimi Gross, Steven Taylor and Carol Mullins.

This show runs approximately 65 minutes.
