Missouri Contemporary Ballet presents ‘Connectivity’


You’ve seen Missouri Contemporary Ballet (MCB) take the stage in the past, but this time they won’t be doing it alone! MCB is proud to present “Connectivity,” an artistic collaboration with Island Moving Company (IMC), a contemporary ballet company from Newport, RI.

MCB first joined forces with IMC in July 2012 when they traveled to Newport, RI to be the Resident company of IMC’s Great Friends Dance Festival. To continue and further the artistic relationship, IMC is traveling to Columbia to perform on MCB’s home turf.

“Connectivity” will feature three works from MCB’s past repertoire and one new work.
• Twisted has always been a fan-favorite. Choreographed for MCB’s first season, this piece is based on the classic game ‘Twister’.
• Falling Apart originally premiered in 2009. Featuring the athletic women of the company, this work explored the deterioration of a dancer, both physically and mentally.
• Tango de Muerte was also created for MCB’s first season. Choreographed by nationally known Tiger Martina, this piece follows two people who die tragic deaths and meet in the afterlife.
• Catch’Up by company member Fernando Rodriguez will debut in this production. Rodriguez explores the idea of someone who tries constantly to fit in, but ends up missing out on life, only to catch the falling pieces of the lives of others.

Island Moving Company will be bringing three works, performing two in each show.
• Struggle For Comfort is a heavy work choreographed by Artistic Director Miki Ohlsen.
• Pheromone was first performed at the Great Friends Dance Festival 2012. It explores the stimulating sensuality and the natural uninhibited interactions among human beings.
• In the Beginning is a new work choreographed by Mark Harootian, a member of Festival Ballet of Providence.

You’ll want to be part of this race occasion joining two American dance companies from vastly different parts of the country in a celebration of the human connection. Join Missouri Contemporary Ballet and Island Moving Company as they strengthen their artistic relationship!
