Spark of Radiance presented by Texture Contemporary Ballet

July 12 @ 8:00 pm - 9:45 pm

Spark of Radiance marks the opening of Texture’s fourteenth season, packed with energy, creativity, and beauty!

Drawing inspiration from the title of our opening production, Artistic Director Alan Obuzor’s new work is inspired by radiant movement, music, and artistry. His choreography highlights sparks of unapologetic individuality for the dancers, as well as moments that reflect the feeling of coming together and community. With the stirring instrumental music, as well as the interwovenness of the dancers and choreography, the piece will allow the viewer’s imagination to expand and explore.

Guest choreographer Henry Steele Dillon’s “Mirage Arena” explores the trials and triumphs that present themselves when we face obstacles that have been fabricated by ourselves or those around us. This dynamic and athletic work is set to music by Max Richter and Hans Zimmer.

Resident Dancer Madeline Kendall Schreiber’s new creation is inspired by the music of bluegrass musician Billy Strings, who has an incredible collection of work that ranges from fast and dynamic to laidback and heartfelt. By creating movement in harmony with his music, Madeline’s goal for the work is for the audience to get lost in the rhythms and words, tapping their feet one moment and reflecting on life in another.
