THESE EVENTS ARE FORTUNATE
In this 50-minute original work, Hamrick has created a world where people are endearing, awkward, vulnerable, strong, funny, and confident. Get to know them, and along the way, watch for bold, athletic, exuberant dancing, rapid-fire micro-movements, and quiet moments of humanity, all interlaced with Hamrick’s signature humor. This work is meant to be viewed close up.
Three shows only:
Saturday, June 3rd at 5pm and 8pm
Sunday, June 4th at 2pm
See it, feel it, experience it in the intimate Rollins Theatre.

HOW TO WATCH A KDH MODERN DANCE PERFORMANCE LIKE A PRO
IF YOU ARE NEW TO MY WORK
Don’t worry about “getting” anything, just watch. I’m interested in people and their stories, and my dances are almost always about people doing people things, so my best advice is to watch what happens. It’s similar to people-watching at the park, the mall, the airport, restaurant, beach or wherever.
WHAT YOU MIGHT SEE
I’m into movement invention which means I go into the studio and investigate new ways of moving. If you want, look closely for detailed, complex, sometimes hidden movements and a high contrast between dynamics like super-fast and super-slow. You might also notice that I break things up and then re-group.
IF YOU WANT MORE FROM YOUR EXPERIENCE
Try this tip I learned from a friend: Watch, notice what piques your interest, and then ask yourself why. Why does this particular moment grab your attention? Why does that one make you feel a certain way? This helps you get into my thoughts and better understand my choreographic intentions.
THERE’S NO WRONG ANSWER
It’s up to you to decide if my work is funny, poignant, moving, odd, eerie, disturbing, beautiful or all of the above. It is fine with me if you see something or feel something completely different from what I see and feel. You get to bring your own history to, and see your own reflection in, the work. In a sense, every dance is tailor-made for you. My hope is that you will feel something and that you’ll be intrigued enough to come back and experience the next work.
