Our newest dance, Bemused, premiered on March 23 & 24 at the Ruth Page Theater as part of “Triptych: 3 Dance Voices.” Bemused is an aerial duet which traces the relationship of a man his muse or idea. The man is danced by Zada Cheeks and his idea is danced by Katie Graves. The idea starts out as a small inkling, she gets ignored and eventually, gets his attention. As he gives more of his time and energy over to the idea, she starts to slip away. Winifred Haun choreographed the work in 6 weeks and she was ably assisted by Erika Gilfether Adams, who trained and worked with the dancers in aerial strap technique.
