Hillsboro Community Center, 316 Elenore Street, Hillsboro
Shake up your Sunday afternoon on February 26, 2017 and experience something completely different! Los Angeles modern dance company Benita Bike’s DanceArt will present an interactive dance program that surprises and awakens at 3pm at the Hillsboro Community Center in Hillsboro, NM. Suitable for adults, children and seniors, this unique dance show will inspire all with the grace and subtlety of the human form.
Benita Bike’s DanceArt has performed across New England, in Europe and throughout California during its 35-year history. This five-member modern dance company has received praise for its quality concert work and its extensive community outreach programming. Like a string quintet, the dancers of Benita Bike’s DanceArt perform with uncommon sensitivity to one another, bringing intense beauty and vibrancy to each delicately crafted, expressive movement.
The Hillsboro performance will feature “For Rose,” “Through the Lens,” and “In the Garden.” “For Rose” is a dance about the passing of choreographer Benita Bike’s mother Rose. Stark and poignant, this dance touches on complicated feelings of love, discordance, and death. “Through the Lens,” is accompanied by the quirky and surprising music from fantastical instruments, and “In the Garden,” accompanied by the sounds of night and Finnish vocal music, brings an ancient lost garden to life.
The HCC performance series is sponsored by the Sierra County Arts Council, NM Arts, and the Black Range Lodge.
