CRADLE Premiere at Dance Place September 12th & 13th

A minimal and absurd revelation of the contemporary female body.


"Selected by an independent panel of dance professionals, Dance Metro DC’s 2015 Choreographer’s Commissioning recipients reveal the fruits of their participation in this debut program. Adrienne Clancy / ClancyWorks Dance Company features uniquely architectural partnering and socially charged choreography in Dream Catchers. CRADLE, by Hayley Cutler / darlingdance company, is a sarcastic yet personal exorcism of the pop-culture demons saying women can “have it all.” Snake Telegram, Sarah Beth Oppenheim / Heart Stück Bernie’s quirky, luscious operetta, is both a mystery and surprise that arcs from coil to cry." -
