…Intrepid trained dancers, who are to be admired for their focus, stamina and skill…impressive.
What happens after an end?
/SHIFT/ is a physical and energetic work by modern dance company and Aronoff Center for the Arts resident company, MamLuft&Co. Dance, who was named “Best Dance Company Pushing the Envelope” by CityBeat in 2012.
Through movement, /SHIFT/ follows a happenstance community of ‘survivors’ after an unknown catastrophic event. The unseen event is up for interpretation: was it a bomb? an epidemic? an apocalypse? a tumultuous change in power? Or, something as simple as a personal or interpersonal catastrophe?
The community is caught in a world where change is forcing them to rebuild. /SHIFT/ glimpses into their intersecting story lines, including that of a reluctant peacemaker, two rising leaders at-odds, and non-conformists who are searching for their place.
…Will both impress you with technique and provoke you with thoughtful choreography.
