A tale of love and passion told with the fervent art of flamenco dancing, Lluvia (Spanish for "Rain"), is the latest show from Eva Yerbabuena. Highly respected throughout the international dance scene, Yerbabuena has been honored with a number of prestigious awards, including the Premio Nacional de Danze (Spain's National Dance Award), and hailed as "a visionary, magisterial dancer whose effects go far beyond technique," by The Guardian. In Lluvia she will be joined by four other talented dancers and an ensemble of musicians, as she continues to expand the tradition of flamenco dancing with her world-class footwork that The Independent describes as "the kind of artistry that appears once in a generation."

Triangulating Euclid (2013)
Choreographers: Brenda Way, KT Nelson, Kate Weare
Way and Nelson team up with acclaimed New York-based choreographer Kate Weare in this unprecedented collaboration designed to shake up their creative process and explore new artistic territory. Inspired by a rare original edition of Euclid’s Elements, the most influential work in the history of mathematics, this highly physical and emotive piece moves from the formal elegance of geometry to its human implication: from triangles to threesomes, from lines to connections, from the page to the heart.
Two If by Sea (World Premiere)
Choreographer: Kimi Okada
Okada’s Two If By Sea, a duet for dancers Jeremy Smith and Vanessa Thiessen, explores the mystery of the signs a couple uses to communicate. We all have our codes, from the tug of an ear to the lift of an eyebrow to the secret languages of Morse code, baseball base coaching, and semaphore signaling, This rhythmic, physical duet unveils the power of hidden or overt signals in our lives.
The Light Has Not the Arms to Carry Us (2006)
Choreographer: Kate Weare
An abstract exploration into primitive states, The Light Has Not The Arms To Carry Us delves into abasement, wariness, sensuality and tenderness through formal movement exploration, rhythmic play against the sound, and a decisive use of space etched by light.
