It’s that time again – take out your calendars and add those dance shows that tickle your fancy!  Maybe try something new…?

November 8 and 9 DanceHouse presents the second in it’s season with Wen Wei Dance in 7th Sense. This work is an exploration of how we wield control and succumb to it: an invisible force that shapes our lives and our relationships. Inspired by the dichotomy that informs improvisation—uninhibited abandon and controlled precision—choreographer Wen Wei Wang examines ideas of control and power through his new dance creation. The full-length work is an exploration of the invisible force that shapes our lives and our relationships, rich with complex and insightful explorations of the human condition from a global perspective.
