COLLISIONS is a sequence of episodes that takes on ideas of immediate impact on our lives: tension between generations, cultures, and climatic changes. This project is a culmination of the depth, history, invention, teaching, and collaborations that Shirley Mordine has experienced in her years as Artistic Director. The evening includes a duet composed and performed by Hema Rajagopalan and Mordine, a dance choreographed by the Company dancers and set on Mordine, work composed by puppeteer Michael Montenegro that will pair Mordine with a life-size puppet operated by two dancers and a piece for five dancers derived from images of disruption and change as witnessed in nature.
