Daniel Costa: Resonance

DANIEL COSTA
Resonance
A Velocity Co-Production
May 1-3 / 7:30PM
Velocity 1621 12th Ave

Velocity is very excited to announce our spring co-production with Daniel Costa Dance. After a James Ray residency and several premieres within larger showcases, Resonance marks the full-length debut of both new and remounted work by one of Seattle’s fast-rising choreographic stars. Weaving together his backgrounds in contemporary, modern, and street-style choreography with Seattle creative collective The Purple Lemonade, Costa offers a bold new choreographic vision that is at once fluid, rigorous, and stunningly precise. In this co-production, Costa will be developing a body of work around the concept of resonance, and the ways in which energy reverberates both in an individual body and in a collective. At a moment when our discourse and public sphere feels increasingly fractured, Daniel Costa Dance wants to offer a visceral and poetic vision of togetherness through contemporary movement.
