Artistic Questioning and the Search for Meaning Culminates During This Dance Performance

Core Dance, a contemporary dance organization, creates, performs, and produces compelling original dance that ignites the creative spirit and actively encourages participation and conversation by and with the community. Creating a context for dance that is relevant in our home cities and around the globe, Core Dance uses dance to illuminate, educate and question. On Friday, October 25th, the dance company presents their latest performance, “if... a memoir”.

At the heart of the challenges, the difficulties we face, how can we develop empathy, continue to be affected, to believe in the capacity of the human being? “If…a memoir” seeks to create an emotional response between the artists and the audience. The fruit of an artistic questioning and a quest for meaning, “if…a memoir” reveals what connects us to each other: beauty, weaknesses, vulnerability, and what it is to be inherently human.

Choreographed by co-founder and artistic director Sue Schroeder, “if... a memoir” was created in collaboration with the Dance Artists of Core Dance, Christian Meyer (composer), Simon Gentry (cinematographer) and Sarah Turquety (poet). It is an evening-length, physical theater choreopoem that addresses the tipping point we as humanity are facing, freedom and limits.
