Double Bill Weekend - MorrisonDance and Alpha
In the Space of Dreams: Asleep and Awake
Using their signature mash-up of movement styles, MorrisonDance explores a powerful part of the human experience – dreams. Featuring live music composed by Braden Pontoli, the company examines the surreal visions, sensations and thoughts produced in R.E.M. sleep and the immeasurable aspirations we accomplish when we commit ourselves unwaveringly.
Choreographed & Directed by Sarah Morrison

Behind the Next Door
In this new work, Alpha journeys through the freshly opened doors of three individuals and their experience of peeking behind the ones left closed. Behind the Next Door investigates the “what if?,” the “what could have been or could be?,” the dreams of what life has in store and how these musings can hinder us from taking a leap of faith in a new direction.
Choreographed & Performed by Gemma Freitas-Bender, Blake Krapels and Michael Marquez
