Bitter Suites mixes fact and fantasy in a coming of age story that celebrates the nostalgia of growing up. Imaginative movement, music, text, and visual design intersect in a dreamy, pastel landscape. This bittersweet story follows five performers as they examine their own memories surrounding the inevitable transition from childhood innocence to self-aware adulthood. Iconic imagery and references from late 20th century pop culture heavily influence the costume, lighting, and set design. The original score meshes classical structure with instrumentation prevalent in the 80’s and 90’s.

Presented as part of the Merce Cunningham Centennial

As part of the Merce Cunningham Centennial, Velocity is proud to present a series of performances, workshops + talks surrounding the artistry and legacy of Merce Cunningham. Cunningham was born in Centralia, WA in 1918 and taught at Cornish College of the Arts right here in Seattle, where he met a young accompanist named John Cage in his dance class with Bonnie Bird. Cunningham went on to become one of the most important choreographers of the 20th century, breaking down social and formal barriers not only in dance but across disciplines in time-based work. Stay tuned for more information…we’ll be announcing our line-up by the end of October!
