Flux Continuum showcases five premieres that capture the complexity of embodied experience:

Guest choreographer and Seattle-based artist Amy O’Neal, known for her ardent intersection of street styles and contemporary dance, premieres There is no Other. This work for six dancers explores the binary of masculine and feminine as well as the agency of a diverse group of bodies to identify or reject these opposing categories. This work is linked to her current evening length dance, Opposing Forces, which will tour to Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in February of 2017.

Paris-based choreographer Wanjiru Kamuyu’slatest work At the Moment of Encounter was choreographed in the Spring of 2015 during her artistic residency at Mills. At the Moment physicalizes the self’s encounter with its internal landscape. By creating a continually changing perspective for the audience, Kamuyu allows us to engage a shifting world of imagery, texture, scale, space, and density.

Mills Repertory Dance Company Artistic Director and long-time Bay Area choreographer Kara Davis uses non-gendered partnering in her premiere, Seguir, to express the physical and metaphoric power of momentum and shared weight. Meaning “to continue” in Spanish, Seguir investigates the paradox of loneliness inherent in the human experience and how the potency of this shared experience can connect individuals to one another.

Choreographer and department chair Sheldon Smith presents his new work, Battle Mountain Interruptus, which is set on eight performers, Battle Mountain is an embodied hallucination moving through a sense of impending doom.

Mills faculty member and renowned Bay Area choreographer Sonya Delwaide explores the shared common space and what it evokes for three individuals in her trio Entre deux et trois.
