The Creature’s fifth season opens with our new dance theater piece titled but, love, the latest collaboration between ChristinaNoel Reaves, Aeric Meredith-Goujon, Cameron Mizell, and The Creature cast, utilizing the unique blend of dance and voice performance Reaves has developed as a signature of her company. This work explores individuality in a time of ever-increasing polarization. What is our place in this society? Can we influence change, or is the inertia of divide simply too much? The Creature performers dance, act, and sing through confrontations with each other and their own psyche, sometimes with dramatic tension, sometimes with comic relief, always with breathtaking artistry.
In addition to but, love, the evening shows will include performances by the kids’ company The Ephyras, showcasing Reaves work with children ages 7-13, and a visual arts display of The Creature works over the past year. This will be a special weekend for fellow artists and audience members to get up close and personal with new material and celebrate the past, present, and future of The Creature.
