Hailing from San Francisco, Aura Fischbeck returns to Colorado with her company Aura Fischbeck Dance, along with The Riley Project, who will be making their Rocky Mountain debut. The two companies, who have co-produced and co-presented extensively in the Bay area, bring new and revisited contemporary dance works, investigating such themes as lost love, body politics, and silent films. This program promises a satisfying dose of athleticism, reflection, experimentation, humour, and artistry. They will be joined by local choreographer Nathan Montgomery/Syzygy Butoh.
Rita Felciano of The San Francisco Bay Guardian has called Fischbeck’s work:
" . . . lusciously danced, with a wonderful sense of spontaneity" and her dancing "fierce" and ". . . expressively pliant, with a willingness to go for purity over bravura."
