Kaeja d’Dance kicks off its 25th anniversary year with world premieres by both Karen and Allen Kaeja that play with notions of fate, coincidence and choice.
Karen Kaeja’s new quintet elicits an enigmatic and provocative take on the road map to love. It’s about coupling and the constant search for that perfect match – short term, long term and anything in-between. What makes us fall in and out of love — choice, timing or some mysterious random pattern of attraction? Taxi! embraces hope, laughter, hesitation, conflict and desire.
Allen Kaeja’s .0 (point zero) is immediate. The result of any decision has a myriad of consequences. Are we ready? .0 is haunting. Continually rebounding and finding stability in a volatile environment. .0 is unpredictable. Supporting the impulsive, five dancers propel, distract, interfere and encourage each other’s choices through partial set choreography and partial improvisation. The distinction is erratic. .0 is now.
