AXIS Dance Company, one of the world’s most acclaimed and innovative ensembles of performers with and without disabilities, will change the way you think about dance and the possibilities of the human body forever. Founded in 1987 and based in Oakland, California, AXIS has become a jewel of contemporary dance and disability culture. AXIS has paved the way for a powerful contemporary dance form—physically integrated dance—performing in over 100 cities in the US, Israel, UK, Europe, and Russia.
For their Austin debut, AXIS brings three short performances to Bass Concert Hall:
- Petrichor– the smell of earth after rain by Jennifer Archibald. This program, offers snapshots of intimate connections and pushes the dancers of AXIS to face how gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
- Flutter by Robert Dekker. A trio of dancers explore the balance between structure and freedom, between holding on and letting go, and between individuality and interconnectedness.
- Radical Impact by Marc Brew. Performers explore what it means to be human through music and movement, investigating themes around identity. The work draws on each dancer’s unique experiences and how they identify in the world and connect with others – telling their stories through the medium of dance.
