Community members of all ages, experience and backgrounds come together for Dance Generators? compelling multigenerational performance that relieves age-based stereotypes by showcasing the beauty in the diverse human form. Dance Generators, a company consisting of dancers ages 20 to 80, approaches the art of dance through teamwork and an innovative creation process. This annual performance operates under the artistic direction of Kristin Horrigan and guest choreographers Fritha Pengally, Jen Polins and Maureen Shea; it also includes improvisation by the company dancers.
This year, Dance Generators will be joined on stage by Amherst?s adult choir DaCamera Singers. Cummington?s youth group Dolphin Dancers plays an integral role in the performance as well. This season?s work celebrates the themes of human relationships, the nature of loss, intersections , and contradictions between the living body and its projected image. Tickets are available at the door 30 minutes before the show. Advance reservations are recommended.
