Jean Isaacs San Diego Dance Theater will start the New Year by returning the Weiss Theater on the UCSD campus for three days of dance. In 'Dances of Love, Laughter & Loss', Isaacs will revisit a work created in 2003, while presenting a World Premiere. Both works embrace text and utilize spoken word in collaboration with movement.
"The Atlantic Man" was originally created and presented at UCSD and the California Center for the Arts, Escondido and it has not been presented in its entirety since. The work is based on a radio play by French writer and filmmaker Marguerite Duras. The passionate and moving text focuses on memories, absen ce, love and longing. With simple language, the text encourages the reader to ebb and flow with the tides of the Atlantic.
The second half of the program will feature "Pillow: Case", a world premiere featuring original text by Meagan Marshall. This light hearted series of miniature, often humorous, dances are inspired by 45-year-old pillow cases and by the people who have slept on them. Marshall, a UCSD alumni, is currently teaching creative writing at both San Diego City College and SDSU.
All choreography is by Jean Isaacs, who taught dance at UCSD for 25 years. Patrons can expect a sexy, smart evening of choreography featuring video/multi-media and live music featuring piano by Steve Baker and bass by Peggy Johnson.
Dancers include: Blythe Barton, John Diaz, Trystan Loucado, Minaqua McPherson, Erica Ruse, Zaquia Mahler Salinas, Ariana Siegel, Kyle Sorensen, Shannon Snyder and Jeremy Zapanta.
