PREVIEW: Company Wang Ramirez’s Borderline

Check out Company Wang Ramirez at The Power Center on Friday, March 9 at 8:00 PM and on Saturday, March 10 at 8:00 PM.  The performance is about 70 minutes long.  There will also be a Q&A after tomorrow night’s performance.

Sébastien Ramirez and Honji Wang are a part of the 6 person dance crew which will perform Borderline.  Other dancers include Louis Becker, Johanna Faye, Saïdo Lehlouh, and Alister Mazzotti.

Ramirez and Wang both have a passion for experimentation even though they come from very different training and personal backgrounds.  The dancers will be attached to an aerial rigging system.  According to their blurb on the UMS website, their goals will be to enact “visual metaphors of flight, struggle, freedom, constraint, and the forces that connect us and tear us apart.”  L’Indépendant has characterized Company Wang Ramirez as a crucial part of the “contemporary dance revolution.”

I am incredibly excited to see this show!  If you are able to attend and wish to download a program on your own device, check it out here.
