Get ready for another Philadelphia dance premiere, when artists from “the City of Brotherly Love” collaborate with those from Allentown, Pittsburgh, and Washington DC. Philly favorite Evalina "Wally" Carbonell is teaming up with Malcolm Shute, Sarah Carlson and Nick M. Daniels to bring new works to the stage together as a collective on March 19th and 20th.
Their full-length, in-person, thought-provoking show looks at transformation and becoming. Collaborators, they have “admired each other from afar” Carbonell says, but this will be a first time with all four sharing the same program. The artists have crossed paths mostly virtually, sending material through email and Google Drive, so most of the creative process is happening behind closed doors up until showtime. The suspense!
Each of the four will share personal perspectives of the world as relevant today. Wally, our local dance artist, brings three “extremely feminine” works to the table, and she is dancing in them, as well, with the ever beautiful Grace Stern and Weiwei Ma. Mother of two adorable little cuties, one duet, Koyl, Wally created while pregnant, channeling her female energy. Apple, her duet with a chair, and Sycamore are two more works rarely seen in our area. So come on out, you do not want to miss.
With three components to the production, it’s a Smorg of options -do them all or pick and choose. For anyone looking to take part in a movement workshop, join one collaborator, Sarah Carlson, on March 6th. No professional experience necessary.
