Ilumina Dance Project, directed and choreographed by Shoji Yamasaki, is this summer’s artist in residence at El Camino College. Four dancers (Jayme Barr, Christina Morales, Evelyn Sanchez, and Shoji Yamasaki) unite to world premier two new works, “Increments” and “Want” in a one-night performance of contemporary dance on June 26, 2015 at 8 pm.
The story of time is told in “Increments,” as dancers carve the space with different philosophies of time. The piece examines our perception of time, the cycle of human life, and the significance of chronological order in our temporal existence.
In “Want,” a game of musical chairs is played to see who the winner is going to be. This work reveals the source of greed and the dancers confront myriad of emotions that feed off the source.
