Portal: Stories from the Edge
This November, venture through Portal: Stories from the Edge, Luminarium Dance’s newest feature production that ignites the company’s signature imaginative choreography and theatricality. Portal is an evening of vibrant storytelling and experience that provides entry to five unique worlds of dance. Created by Artistic Directors Merli V. Guerra and Kimberleigh A. Holman, the five stand-alone new works will have audiences jumping down the proverbial rabbit hole, exploring metaphor and labyrinth, examining and observing the inconsistencies of human relationship, and wandering through the pages of history. In addition to four new concert dance works, audiences can revel in the excitement of the company’s recent world premiere at the Boston Opera House. Originally commissioned by TEDxCambridge to open the largest TED event in the world this past June, this vigorous anand dynamic octet will be shown for the last time in its current state, a true highlight of Luminarium’s 2016 Season.
