Deep Vision Dance Company & ASEID Dance
March 2 & 3
Deep Vision Dance Company and ASEID Dance collide for an eclectic evening of contemporary dance highlighting their unique styles, brilliance, virtuosic range, and nuanced splendor. Featuring choreography by Artistic Directors Nicole A. Martinell and Alison Seidenstricker, respectively, as well as collaborations with dancers, choreographers, visual artists, and musicians from District of Columbia, Maryland, and New York, COLLIDE captivates audiences in a winding journey through original works.
Pushing boundaries in Baltimore since 2011, Deep Vision Dance Company (DVDC) thrives on cultivating immersive and collaborative dance experiences that engage and inspire the community. DVDC is propelled by Founder/Artistic Director, Nicole A. Martinell’s passion for the creative process. Her works plunge audiences into unique worlds, highlighting a flux of emotion and challenging one’s view of reality.
Celebrating their return to Theatre Project, DVDC shares three new duets of mysterious beauty and wit. Cadence, or lack thereof illuminates the comically awkward do-si-do of individuals attempting to connect their inner rhythms to each other’s habitual grooves. In the subtext, this work teasingly portrays dancers in the creative process. Tender Root explores the transformative cycle of organic matter through images of blooming, leaves unfurling, and vines weaving as two bodies seamlessly morph and create new forms. Finally, The Somethings in My Mind portrays the strange, yet enchanting, burden of one’s thoughts, revealing what transpires when one becomes consumed by their mental constructs. Works feature collaborations with Desiree Dantona and Samantha Hopkins (dancers), Malcolm Shute (Artistic Director/choreographer, Human Landscape Dance), Timothy Nohe (visual artist), Kendra Shapanus (costume designer), and Griff Beheler, Ashley King, and Graham McCarthy (musicians).
Relocating to Baltimore after six seasons in New York City, ASEID Dance is excited to make their debut in the Baltimore Community. Artistic Director, Alison Seidenstricker created ASEID Dance in 2004 with the pursuit of innovative dance concepts through the collaborative fusion of movement styles and artistic views. The energy of ASEID Dance comes from the creative spirit of its diverse membership. At the core of the company is the magnetic spirit of the director, Seidenstricker, who blends her artistic vision with that of her dancers to create movement that embodies and celebrates diversity and collaboration.
After taking time off for continuing education, Seidenstricker looks forward to stepping back into the choreographic community with a series of new and developed repertory works. Her newest creation, currently untitled, explores the multifaceted response to the different changes that occur in one’s life. The different threads of individual experience ultimately interweave through the commonality of shared experience of human response.
