Kelley Donovan & Dancers create dance that investigates the internal world of transformation and expresses the intimate self through movement, ranging from soft fluidity to athletic physicality. With a sequential use of the torso with abrupt energy changes and weight shifts, dancers physically explore the theme of impermanence by never letting their weight settle for two long in one shape and move with an restless urgency toward the next physical event. A non-linear series of images and serpentine movement vocabulary gather strength in its accumulation of details, gestures and exchanges of energy.
Exploring the gray area between the extremes of purely classical modern dance and theatrical narrative, Donovan creates movement rich with imagery, experienced viscerally and expressive of transformation.
