Baltimore Dance Project returns to UMBC with a dynamic program featuring premieres of new works: Doug Hamby’s Square Breath for six women with an interactive sound score performed by Eliza Triolo and Christian Hartman; Hamby’s Letting Go, a meditative solo on loss and memory performed by Maia Schechter; and Hamby’s Two Songs by John Cage with music performed live by mezzo-soprano Janice Jackson and percussionists Tom Bryant and Josh Miller; Carol Hess’ vibrant LightForest featuring five dancers, colorful projections and score by Timothy Nohe via wearable sound devices; and a new duet by Desiree Koontz-Nachtrieb. The program also includes encores of favorites Image in Red, Carol Hess’ reconstruction of Janet Soares’ sumptuously beautiful solo, and Sandra Lacy’s mysterious solo Lost. Don’t miss it!
