Infinity Dance Theater invites you to celebrate the company’s 20th Anniversary Season with, As We Are, featuring dynamic works performed by dancers with disabilities. Infinity’s anniversary program will begin with Artistic Director Kitty Lunn’s classic solo, In Time Like Air, (Peter Pucci, choreographer), called “rapturous” by Phyllis Goldman (Backstage). Alice Sheppard will present her solo Doors, set to a score composed by her father. The Unbound Suite, Lunn’s duet inspired by the elements of Feng Shui, celebrates the boundless potential within us all.
The program will conclude with the world premiere of Lunn’s new ensemble work Stardust, in which Lunn and Sheppard will be joined by dancers Michelle Mantione and Krishna Christine Washburn. Lunn was inspired by the words of Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, who wrote “we are not figuratively, but literally stardust,” adding that “we are biologically connected to every other living thing in the world.” William Catanzaro, who has composed original music for The Unbound Suite and Stardust, will perform live, joined by saxophonist Kevin Danenberg.
