Brian Brooks: Wilderness

Brian Brooks: Wilderness

Summer Heat International Dance Festival

Aug. 6 at 8 p.m.
Chapman Music Hall

PRESENTED BY: Choregus Productions

Control and chaos collide in "Wilderness," performed by the critically acclaimed and award-winning Brian Brooks and his New York based ensemble with live music by Sandbox Percussion. Within the walls of a pristine white room, an enigmatic world exists at the intersection of order and impulse. Like molecules of compressed energy, eight dancers hurtle through composer Jerome Begin’s relentless percussion score and rise to choreographer Brian Brooks’ signature challenge to suspend the limits of the body and the imagination. Alternately combative and intimate, "Wilderness" is tempered by moments of both restraint and fluidity, revealing the opposing sides of the human condition.
