In Collaboration With LA-Based Pieter Performance Space,
Series to Feature an Array of Instruction and Performance by Noted Dance Artists in LA’s Union Station
In collaboration with Pieter Performance Space, Metro Art Presents “Moving Through,” a monthlong series of dance and movement for times of change featuring a diverse group of teaching artists. The series, culminates Thursday, April 22, at 7 p.m. with the premier of "Baggage," a theatrical dance work for film, on Metro’s Facebook, Metro Art’s Facebook, and Union Station’s Facebook and YouTube channels. .
Choreographed by Jay Carlon with music by Alex Wand, “Baggage” celebrates origin stories and embodies the many histories of arrivals and departures at Union Station. A personal family narrative is unpacked through music, dance and memory inside Union Station’s Ticketing Hall. Carlon, was named as one of the 25 dancers to watch in 2020 by Dance Magazine, and Wand is a Grammy Award-winning musician and composer.
Each program features a connection to transit, ranging from the practical (meditative movement to bring calm during a hurried commute) to the abstract (through Cunningham Technique, a systems-based dance form developed by distinguished choreographer Merce Cunningham) to the historical (House Dance’s relationship to the subway system in Chicago and New York).
