ahdanco, a Bay Area based dance company under the direction of Abigail Hosein, is proud to present its 9th home season, REVIVE. RESURGE. REMAIN. from April 25-May 2 at the ODC Dance Commons. REVIVE. RESURGE. REMAIN. is an evening-length premiere featuring dances about our struggles against and towards fulfillment.
Performed by eight dancers, with lighting design by Derek Duarte and original compositions by Scott Simon and Entamoeba, …REMAIN. is a work contemplating the divide between highs and lows, community and isolation, visual abundance and stark stillness. It is an exploration of viscerally flowing, spacious movement fueled by momentum and dispersed with dissonant details. …REMAIN. aims to stir something familiar in the viewer – the sense that life consists of ease accented with discord. The dance seeks to access both the collective conscious and unconsciousness that make us empathetic and relatable to each other and our surroundings.
Hosein’s choreography has been described by critics as “powerfully elegant and haunting,” and “punctuated with sharp detail.” Rita Feliciano lauded her ability to “employ a well-chosen imaginative vocabulary which produce[s] choreographies with emotional resonance.”
