The Chaddick Dance Theater presents “Interior Landscape of the Emotional Mind” at Ballet Austin across two weekends, February 22nd-24th and March 1st-3rd. The performance reflects on how we, as humans, process emotions; they can be all encompassing, non-linear, irrational, and therefore very truthful. Travel through Ballet Austin from its entryways to studios to fire escapes on a progressive dance journey.
The first episode will be held in the foyer on the stairs. Then small groups will be lead through six vignettes of visual presentations. End the tour in the Armstrong Connelly studio with seats in the round. “During this performance we imagine the mind to be cavernous, filled with emotional spaces,” says Chaddick. “We’ll take the audience on an expedition of the interior landscape of the emotional mind as we address primal feelings like hope, pleasure, fear or anger.”
Composers John Michael Hunt and Chris Donahue have produced an original score for the performance, along with custom lighting design by Bill Sheffield. Visual artist Naomi Schlinke has created a dynamic digital projection for the final dance in the round.
Artistic Director and Choreographer: Cheryl Chaddick; Dancers: Amber Bright, Nathan Brumbaugh, Katie Mae Hebert,Maia McCoy, Cameron Oefinger, Erica Stivison, Lindsey Taylor, Nicole Whiteside, Stanley Williamson, and Christine Angela Wong.
