ORIGINAL SCORE BY ROBERT POSS

LIVE MUSIC BY ROBERT POSS AND KATO HIDEKI

PERFORMED BY CARLY BERRETT PLAGIANKOS, LEA FULTON, EDWARD RICE, SIMON THOMAS-TRAIN

milkdreams strips the performers of their veneers of ego, agenda, and shame, laying bare their need, their contentment, and the authenticity of their present moment. Both the process of creating the work, and the work itself, attempt to sift from the body the habits, inhibitions, and presentations of the trained dancer, and to recover a physicality motivated entirely by sensation, desire, joy, curiosity, and, ultimately, love.

Created in 2001, Alexandra Beller/Dances has been extremely active in the New York scene as well as throughout the United States, and has toured to Cyprus, Hong Kong, Oslo, Amsterdam, Poland, Russia, and Korea. The work has been commissioned by and performed at Dance Theater Workshop, PS 122, Joyce SoHo, Danspace Project at St. Mark’s, University Settlement, Aaron Davis Hall, as well as Jacob’s Pillow, SUNY Purchase, and in Michigan, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, and Arizona. Beller was a longtime member of the Bill T Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, performing around the globe to critical acclaim. Her own works have been created and performed for companies and Universities throughout the US.
