Under the co-artistic direction of Jessie Jeanne Stinnett and award-winning, Dutch-Israeli choreographer Itzik Galili, Boston Dance Theater (BDT) is Boston’s first contemporary dance repertory company with international ties at the leadership level. With a commitment to presenting works of socio-political relevance that challenge the edges of current world issues, BDT matches the talents of Boston-based dancers with those of acclaimed global choreographers in a tour de force of performative dynamism, community connection, and trans-national ambassadorship.
The program includes Deeper Inscription (working title), a new quintet by New York City-based Sidra Bell, that frames the female body as a radical kaleidoscope with the capacity to create common ground for a shared movement vocabulary. BDT also performs Yin Yue’s Today for Now, set to the music of iconic singer/songwriter Janis Joplin. This new work explores a meeting of inner sensitivity and outward wildness. Vigorously physical and unapologetically loud, the work unveils a tribe of dancers tasked with driving one another forward as they join forces to celebrate an unbroken lineage of upstanding women.
