Transitional State attempts to describe, through a nonlinear narrative, characters overwhelmed by life transitions leading to a state of emotional unraveling, expressed through the movement and laughter. Through mercurial weight shifts we will explore how these sudden shifts, optimistically force us to adapt.

Phases, a duet for longtime friends and dancers Karen Klein and Kelley Donovan, depicts movement and performance at different times in one’s life. The Body Becomes the Messenger attempts to show how our body thrives when all is integrated and in balance. When we try to have our mind, heart and soul work without addressing our body’s needs and concerns, we battle against ourselves. Only in true union of all of parts of ourselves can we be at our strongest and best.
