Nicolay Dance Works presents "Beyond"
Featuring fluid, dream-like choreography, "Beyond" embraces surreal themes with rich characters that standout among the pieces, often providing a narrative for audience members.
In Dream Birds dancers flow seamlessly in and out of graceful lifts, demonstrating mastery of strength, balance and control as they create an imaginative dream environment. Daring and adrenaline-charged, Free Fall creates feelings and visions frequently remembered from our dreams of falling or flying. Also among the dances is Early Retirement, a solo piece performed by Cody Miley, in which choreographer Dana Nicolay delves into his family's own past with a monologue dance that explores his father's personal life and career.
Other works on the program include Sabachthani, a work for six men that explores the implications of the Easter story and Hands On, a duet to the music of Peter Gabriel among others.
Now in its second year, Nicolay Dance Works currently features 11 young artists studying dance at Sam Houston State University.
