November 14, 2013

ATLANTA¿Emory Dance presents Catellier Dance Projects! (CDP) "pre-suf-fixes," December 6 ¿ 8 at the Schwartz Center for Performing Arts. The performance will feature extracts from CDP's previous works shown at Emory, and a preview of material from "Corpus Mysterious," premiering September 2014.

Emory faculty member and choreographer Gregory Catellier collaborates with Atlanta composer Kendall Simpson and Seattle-based media artist Jeff Curtis to look back at how they have influenced each other and the work they have created together. Catellier is also celebrating the talented dancers he has worked with over past four years including, Alex Abarca, Corian Ellisor, Alisa Mittin, Claire Molla, Kristin O'Neal, Lillian Ransijn and new comers Anna Bracewell, Andre Lumpkin and Kala Seidenberg.

Catellier says "pre-suf-fixes acts as a critical step for CDP by allowing us to reflect on what we have made, who we are, and how to move forward. Actually, it¿s more like an unexpected Six Flags stop on the road to 'Corpus Mysterious'."

"pre-suf-fixes" will feature sections from a series of evening length works CDP has produced over the last three years, "Tempo: A Nonfiction Dance Performance," (2011), "¿the final frontier" (2012) and "E" (2013). "Corpus Mysterious" will be the final installment of the series in 2014. The works each explore one the four elements of dance: time, space, energy and body, respectively.

Catellier Dance Projects! presents "pre-suf-fixes" Dec. 6-7, 2013 at 8 p.m. with an additional 2 p.m. matinee on Dec. 8 in the Schwartz Center Dance Studio, 1700 North Decatur Road.
