Blurred Borders Dance Festival X presented by Patricia Rincon Dance Collective will perform May 22 and 23 at 8p.m. at the Saville Theater. Blurred Borders International Dance Festival was created to encourage an artistic and intellectual exchange from international, national, and local artists.
The annual cross-cultural event returns for its 10th edition to deal with human, gender, age, and physical border crossings in a blend of dance theater and creative video dance.
Five choreographers will be featuring work that is fresh, risk-taking, and powerful. Among them are San Diego’s Eric Geiger, who will be presenting his pieces “Farewell My Dear Ones” with music by Chopin and the Balanescu Quartet and his most recent work “Guilt and Shame,” with music by The Carpenters. Allyson Green will present a video dream of dance and light installations called “Inta’s Dream (Zala Zeme).” Patricia Rincon will premiere “Voices of the Moon and Sun” with music by Anoushka Shankar and inspired by the legend of Shiva. Deven P. Brawley will present “TruthOut” set to the music of The Beatles.
Also featured is musician and dance duo Eileen Standley and Monica Page from Amsterdam, who will premiere “Whale,” an improvised performance set to live music dance, and recently joined Divya Devaguptapu from India in Patricia Rincon’s Shankar-inspired work.
