ArtPower!, in partnership with Sushi Contemporary Performance and Visual Arts and the UCSD Department of Theatre and Dance, creates its own Wonderland dance experience in the West Coast’s new international festival of contemporary dance.

Kate Weare creates ingenious and imaginative dances that deal with contemporary perceptions of identity and relationships. Her work explores basic human urges to move and decode movement in the search for intimacy. Her wonderfully intricate, nuanced dance vocabulary is technically challenging yet highly sensuous, if not downright erotic.

As part of Wonderland, you’ll get a sneak peak of Garden, Kate Weare’s new work set to premiere this year at the Joyce Theatre. Garden features the striking physicality and intimate performance style characteristic of Kate Weare Company. It looks at how our individual voices are transformed by intimate intersections with others.

Monica Bill Barnes is a New York-based choreographer and an alumna of the UCSD Theatre and Dance Department described by Deborah Jowitt of The Village Voice as “one of the wittiest young choreographers around—she can stir your heart as well as make you laugh.” Her quirky blend of theatricality, intelligent humor, and humanity yields a rare and tender eloquence.

Another Parade celebrates the singular, exhilarating experience of being on stage. This work features four ungainly–but winning–performers who flirt with subtlety while wearing their hearts on their sleeves. Another Parade is a go-for-broke, all out dance event that packs a punch while straddling the awkward and the debonair.
