ISHIDA Dance Company presents an evening of world premieres in contemporary dance that invite existential questions: no speaking left in me features works choreographed by ISHIDA, John Wannehag from Staatstheater Mainz and Stephanie Troyak from Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch and the Texas premiere of DOMA by Jeremy Galdeano and Vera Kvarcakova who have created works on Les Grands Ballets Canadiens and Nationaltheater Mannheim Tanz.
ISHIDA blends contemporary dance with theatrical elements while retaining the physicality and beauty of the human form from traditional ballet. ISHIDA presents unique narratives relevant to a modern audience that explore archetypal themes connecting to audiences’ psyche and emotions. Two world premieres by ISHIDA include “when shall we three meet again” exploring a complicated relationship between three sisters and “i want to hold, darling” which derives from the historical context when families in Spain thousands of years ago buried the dead within their homes and ancestors tenderly watched over them to guide and comfort. The program will also include a poignant duet originally performed in Wuppertal by John Wannehag and Stephanie Troyak, and the Texas premiere of DOMA, a delightful work by Jeremy Galdeano, a French national and former Soloist with Les Grands Ballets and Vera Kvarcakova, Soloist with the Nationaltheater Mannhein Tanz originally from the Czech Republic.Learn More
