Tere O’Connor Dance: Wrought Iron Fog

“Go see this piece while you can… tremendously evocative in the way it allows subtle, poetic meaning to blossom.“ –The New York Times

West Coast Premiere
The Sharon Disney Lund Dance Series

Widely cited as one of America’s most influential choreographic voices, Tere O’Connor is known as a master of composition and an evocative manipulator of gesture and theatricality. In his latest evening-length work, Wrought Iron Fog, O’Connor’s richly layered choreographic structure highlights unexpected shifts in rhythm and mood as it builds complex relationships with his five idiosyncratic performers. Through often-surprising, continuous dancing, they generate a dynamic network of disparate ideas while at times revealing interior psychologies that remain ghosted beneath the surface of the dance. The result is a moving essay on the nature of human consciousness in the form of beautifully sculpted movement. O’Connor’s work has won him international acclaim and commissions for such important companies as Lyon Opera Ballet and the White Oak Dance Project.
