Pigeonwing Dance performs Bewilderness (2016) inspired by the writings of author and activist Rebecca Solnit.
A response to Solnit’s writings on community, disaster and hope, Bewilderness is a dreamlike puzzle of interlocking stories that dissolve into sinuous, detailed movement and architectural groupings. By turns dark, comic and hopeful, the work suggests magnetic connections between members of a mysterious community. Musical selections include contemporary settings of arias by Henry Purcell. The company also presents a new creation exploring pattern formation in the natural world. In it, the supple and articulate Pigeonwing dancers will move through a sequence of increasingly intricate spirals, waves and vortices, all of it inspired by the simple rules governing some of nature’s most elegant patterns.
