Baltimore Dance Project presents a blend of new, recent, and repertory works featuring the company premiere of Unravel, choreographed in 1995 by the late Eric Hampton and reconstructed by Alison Crosby, and an excerpt from Framework, one of the company’s earliest works, choreographed by the late Elizabeth Walton, the company’s founding artistic director. New works include a solo by Sandra Lacy, and Tipping Point, by Ryan Bailey.
The program also includes Doug Hamby’s Square Breath, a tour de force of intensity and desperation, and Carol Hess’ LightForest, a venture through breathtaking images of nature.
Baltimore Dance Project infuses visual media, sound, light and technology into riveting dance performance. Known for its edgy artistic collaborations between choreographers, composers, sound artists, visual artists, engineers, and technologists, the company presents the creative work of co-directors Doug Hamby and Carol Hess, performer and choreographer Sandra Lacy, and guest artists. Formed in 1982 under the name Phoenix Dance Company, BDP features outstanding performers from the Baltimore/Washington area and has been honored with numerous grants and awards. Hamby, Hess and Lacy have received a total of sixteen individual artist awards from the Maryland State Arts Council, and their work has appeared on the streets of Baltimore and in theaters and film festivals across the United States.
