BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance is presenting a duo of dynamic Hamptons dance performances this summer featuring three works: The Warm-Up – which is making its premiere during the Southampton shows – Agawam and HOME.
“The choreography is action-packed with a strong flow, a current that is sometimes tidal, washing the dancers back and forth across St. Mark’s Church, turning the terrarium into an aquarium,” said Brian Seiburt of The New York Times.
The Warm-Up was inspired by an idea from Bruce Buschel. The active, engaging piece dives into the cross-roads of dance and exercise. HOME uses movements of different types to guide the audience through a stormed, yet intriguing expedition to search for the meaning of home. Agawam connects fast footwork to senses that form the background of ethnic and familial bonds in a post-depression era for working-class Italian-American families.
“The ‘W’ in the title stands for ‘world,’ and Ms. Fellion and her colleagues do succeed in creating one….John Yannelli and members of the SLC Experimental Music Ensemble contribute a richly textured, partly live score of drones, strings plucked and strummed, swelling distortion, and high hums,” Seiburt added.
BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance performances can be seen at Southampton Arts Center (25 Jobs Lane, Southampton) on Saturday, August 5 at 6:30 p.m. and Southampton Cultural Center (25 Pond Lane, Southampton) on Sunday, August 6 at 4 p.m.
