You’re invited to join Mary Love Dance Projects for their upcoming Festival Selections: an evening of Mary Love Dance Projects works.

This diverse concert will include repertory from old and new works, guest choreography from Jere James and Jennia Shanley, and the world premiere of Transference, MLDP’s newest project.

Transference, set to Steve Reich’s intense Violin Phase composition, is a multi-media dance investigating shifting perspectives of time. It integrates a stop-animation film element composed of hundreds of photos taken of the dance by local photographer Scott Hodges of Scoho Studios.

“I’m excited about this concert,” says Mary Love Ward. “It pulls together selections from a collection of projects that represent what we have accomplished since the inception of MLDP in 2011. As the director, it is nice to see these different works parallel to each other. Festival Selections has given me the opportunity to revisit the past with a new perspective and reflect on were we are going in the future. I’m also glad to be including dances from Jere James and Jennia Shanley, two accomplished guest choreographers. Working with these women has brought some new life into our dancing and gives MLDP a chance to experiment with a new aesthetic.”
