Saudade (Portuguese): A deep constant desire for a reality that does not, and probably cannot, exist.
This powerful and emotional new ensemble work by acclaimed choreographer Joshua Beamish merges elegant balletic lines with street-style dynamism and drive. The work conjures up fleeting intimacies in a series of ghostly solos, duets, and group passages.
Featuring six outstanding male dancers whose collective credits include leading companies such as Nederlands Dans Theater, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Sasha Waltz & Guests, and La La La Human Steps.
“I’ve noticed that as we become more electronically connected, people never truly disappear from our lives. This weighs heavily on contemporary relationships. We have never been more aware of how connected we still are to the feelings that continue to exist after a relationship has ended. Saudade is about the parts of our past that refuse to resolve. It is a reminder that some loves, even those not actualized, may stay with us forever.” – Joshua Beamish
