DANCE: CalArts The Sharon Disney Lund School of Dance and REDCAT present the Winter Dance Concert, an evening of dance featuring work by faculty members Laurence Blake and Andre Tyson and a restaging of Twyla Tharp’s 1971 renowned work Torelli.
Torelli, a work created by world-renowned choreographer Twyla Tharp in 1971, follows the course of a morning, starting with “down-to-earth” movement danced in silence and isolation that later develops a “rustic humor” as the movement is manipulated and set against the elegance of Guiseppi Torelli’s “Concerto in D Minor.”

THEATER: A movement piece exploring democratic behavior and the current American political climate, In Decision is an original performance devised and directed by theater and dance artist, Michael Sakamoto in collaboration with performers.
In Decision combines text, butoh inspired movement, and media, as the cast examines such issues as climate crisis, media-driven politics, social intolerance, racial privilege, gender roles, and others. Reflecting on what is required for a critical citizenry through the performers own stories, In Decision takes the audience on a theatrical journey through a cross-section of a generation inheriting a legacy of national hubris, massive debt, and global warming.
