This Friday and Saturday, February 17 and 18, Velocity Dance Center presents the latest in their Access Velocity event series, featuring independent Seattle artists. This installment, DUST, features work by emerging choreographers Daniel Costa, Kimberly Holloway, Emma Hreljanovic and Ashleigh Miller. More via Velocity:

Daniel Costas new work Interposition (working title) continues exploring highly athletic physicality rooted in the deconstruction of technical genres. With original composition by Travis Corwin, mixed with vocals by dancer Alicia Pugh, Interposition works from personal narratives and explores action and reaction within relationships.

Yessir by Kimberly Holloway is an exploration of family, resilience, and the effects of control. Set to original music by Caleb Talbert, Yessir pairs emotionally visceral movement with technical articulations to abstract narratives based on Holloways experiences.

You May Miss Something, by Emma Hreljanovic, incorporates Abnormal Psychology and Freud’s original model of how our minds are constructed. Freud’s three constructs—the Id, the Ego, and the Superego—are represented as characters, each exploring different movement qualities. They whisper and taunt each other; they teach and learn from each other; they coexist in one space, one body.

Brain Is A Radio (Excerpts) by Ashleigh Miller blends movement with psychoacoustic sound designs and illusory multimedia effects to explore individualized consciousness. The piece is an excerpt of a larger installation which will take place at Velocity in the April of 2017.
