How these people related to one another on such shifting grounds and what the significance of their initially huge shadows (designed by Max) was, I couldn't tell.
Closing the evening was Corps de Co., which premiered this summer at the West Wave Dance Festival. It was a disappointment. Not because of the dancers, who performed reasonably well, or Ceres's fast-paced choreography, which was multifocused and densely layered and beautifully balanced individuality with common purpose. The disappointment came from a deficiency in the venue. Integral to this piece is Austin Forbord's excellent video derived from Ceres's choreography. Because Dance Mission Theater doesn't allow for backlighted projection, this key component appeared so pale that it was nearly washed out.
