Choreographer Regina Klenjoski describes her company’s next Wichita appearance as “a feast for your senses.” She along with company members Sarah Frangenberg and Max Mayerle have created a series of dance works, collectively known as “Suite Tooth,” to be performed in the intimacy of Vanya Designs, the studio of designer Alicia V. Ybarra. Audience members can partake in delicious desserts and purchase cocktails to complete the indulgent evening.
“If you’ve visited Vanya Designs, you’ll wonder how we’re going to dance there,” says Klenjoski. “Alicia beautifully transforms the space to create intimate seating on both sides of the space, offering a slightly different viewing experience for each audience member. Seating is limited to 50 guests per evening to keep the experience distinctive.”
Filling that space will be a new work by Klenjoski, "IMbody," a suite of dances conceived from a visceral exploration and embodiment of abstract movement ideas. Klenjoski is exploring the idea of "allowing" body intelligence to come forward and how stored human experiences in the body are expressed as meaningful stories for the viewer. Klenjoski will also share her duet “Lifeline” from “Far From Home,” an exploration of the immigrant experience which premiered in Wichita last May. Company member Sarah Frangenberg will be premiering a new work, "Raah," which aims to illustrate with movement, the meaning of this Hebrew word and the meaning of the English word 'raw.' Company member Max Mayerle performs in his solo work "Aged Totems," a reflection on how traditional masculinity effects mens relationships and how they act in society.
Get lost in the beauty that is DANCE as RKDC celebrates 20 years of inventive choreography, fierce athleticism and compelling storytelling.
