ESDC’s Annual Home Base Concert
May 8, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$25
AN EVENING OF NEW DANCE AND LIVE PERFORMANCES BY ESDC WITH CELLIST ASHLEY BATHGATE AND THE CAPITAL TRIO
In celebration of its 30th Anniversary Season, the Ellen Sinopoli Dance Company will perform a program that features the new dances, Within the Quiet and Faultline, as well as an expansion of As Seen From Above. ESDC is pleased to present the premiere of Undertow, choreographed by ESDC dancer Sara Senecal and commissioned by ESDC.
The evening features celebrated cellist, Ashley Bathgate, performing music by Christopher Cerrone for Faultline and music by Jacob Cooper for Within the Quiet. Also performing are Duncan J. Cumming, Hilary Walther Cumming and Şölen Dikener of the Capital Trio, performing music by William Matthews for As Seen From Above.
ESDC’s unique Egg Kids Project is part of our 30th Anniversary Celebration. In a dance also created by Senecal, young dancers from around the Capital Region bring energy, determination and passion to their performance.
Momentum, sometimes out of control, sometimes caught in suspended space. Power in its most extreme.
Within the Quiet
The elegant sculpting of the dancers’ bodies fluctuates between shifting forms, soft gatherings, windswept designs and serene stillness. The singular texture of the music continually wraps and releases the dancers.
As Seen From Above
The music selected from William Matthews’ “A Book of Hours” is filled with avian imagery and imagination that speaks to swirls, accents, sudden stillness, unexpected energy and speed, voluminous quiet.
Looming force of an underlying current. Just below the boiling point. Fluctuating between heated chaos and cold control.
