Forty Steps Dance will be performing two works, both choreographed by artistic director Sallee Slagle. “Creatures” was created in 2014 and is based on the movements of the variety of creatures around us and our affinity to the natural world. “Accord” is a crowd-pleasing work created in 1992 and was recently performed in Nahant for the company’s 20th anniversary.
Sarah Slifer Swift will present two recent works. “Insenser” (2014 premiere), named after an NSA surveillance system, takes on the human response to watching, being watched and becoming data. “Invisible Stories” (2013) is a collaboration between Swift and Vermont-based writer and choreographer, Kate Morgan, based on the idea that “the book,” open or closed, occupies the landscapes in which we live.
As part of the “Invisible Stories” performance, an installation in one of the Windhover buildings will be on display at the start of each evening.
