ZUZI! Dance, Chaos Theory Dance, Funhouse Movement Theater, Mirela Roza and Dancers, and MAC & Company, shared the stage for a Summer Solstice concert focusing on themes of embodiment, temporal presence, love, and letting go.
Chaos Theory Dance, a “quick-come-pick-me-up” company directed by Billbob Brown since 1999, takes its name from the science of complexity. Through improvisation and set choreography, interactions with musicians, video, cartoons, or dialogue, and with a lot of zaniness, CTD makes work that is fun and emotionally accessible.
Funhouse Movement Theater, with artistic director Sherry Mulholland, creates quality dance programs providing dance education opportunities to the public, including their award-winning Youth Outreach Program, and encourages collaboration within the dance community, focusing on the importance of the arts in our lives.
Mirela Roza was born in Fortaleza Brazil where she received most of her dance training with Tatiana Leskova from the Original Ballets Russe. She is currently employed as Adjunct Faculty at Pima Community College and in her short time there she has found that her background in education, performance, and choreography has helped her contribute to the activities and culture of the department.
MAC & Company is a Phoenix based 501(c)3 non-profit modern dance company, bringing five new works to the Summer Solstice ranging from the fast and fiery to dark and solemn. MAC & Company brings their unique style and choreographic view in each work.
