Description: The Whispering Directions: build up, stretch out, honk fast, make love, eat hummus, find allies, swim out, start war. In The Whispering Directions, somebodies dance theater gives “the impression that each movement originates deep in the body and spreads through every cell.” It is an equally sensuous and athletic work inspired by nine months of living between the serenity of the Mediterranean Sea and the terror of war in the Middle East. Choreographers Gina Bolles Sorensen and Kyle Sorensen are joined by eight of San Diego’s most adventurous dancers in the world premiere of this luscious and risky new work.
Awards: Outstanding Choreography (San Diego International Fringe Festival)
