Bodies will be seen in conjunction with two premieres by Leigh Riley, All You Need and DuBeUs. All You Need grew out of Riley's interest in Aristotle's concepts of love: philia, eros, storge, and agape. "I grew up in a Christian tradition where we always heard about those four different kinds of love," Riley explains. "But I really wanted to make four very different duets." DuBeUs is a collaborative quintet for Caroline Alexander, Jennifer Bennett, Leah Curran, Stacy Swann, and Katharine Vigmostad. It examines the demands on an individual's identity when belonging to and assimilating into a group, such as happened, for instance, throughout "Don't ask, don't tell." *
