Artistic Director and Founder of NYC-based UNA Projects, Chuck Wilt, returns to his native dance community with an enriched voice. October 1, Program A presents the world premiere of RODEO with choreography by Bobbi Jene Smith and Chuck Wilt. October 2-3, Program B presents SHIPS and SALSA with choreography by Chuck Wilt. Friday evening features a talkback session with Artistic Director, Chuck Wilt, moderated by writer in residence at ODC, Marie Tollon. Saturday night, audience members are invited for a reception following the performance. UNA promises a dynamic evening of work, constantly evolving with rhythm, expression, and physicality. RODEO is a playful expression of the self, by dressing up or removing layers. SHIPS is a study on being alone, exploring themes of the sea, while SALSA journeys through a collection of short stories. Each program offers audience members the opportunity to be surprised by surreal notions, and to relate to personable themes.Similar to a conversation, the choreography is generated in a string of reactions, creating little lived in situations, side-by-side. Chuck Wilt draws inspiration from the film world, humor, love and sensitivity to presence. His movement draws from qualities of fluidity, sensuality, explosive power, innate groove and imagination.
