Kanopy Dance: Sunlight for Shorter Days

Directed by Lisa Thurrell and Robert Cleary

A program of sunlight for shorter days, in six works:

· Lisa Thurrell’s “Yggdrasil,” a romantic take on the Norse “Tree of Life”;

· Yuko Sakata's "If, on the other hand," set to Arvo Pärt's “Fratres”;

· Kerry Parker’s “Sofia” inspired by the mystic Sofia’s ‘shining light’;

· Juan Carlos Diaz Velez’ “…de planta, punta y tacón,” a blend of modern and flamenco;

·"The Dove" by guest artist Sandra Kaufmann

· Special treat: Kanopy will dance an excerpt from Martha Graham’s iconic “Appalachian Spring,” a distinctly American dance of grace and expansive hope.
