Dance Initiative is pleased to present HEaRD, a work created by local dance artist Alya Howe. HEaRD will be performed at The Launchpad on November 11 & 12 at 7:30pm at The Launchpad. This full evening performance is inspired by movements of a “herd” and “herd mentality’ and will be performed by Bailey Barnum, Dana Ganssle Ellis, Emily Fifer, Gabriela Alvarez Espinoza, Jeni Ptacek, Meagan Londy Shapiro, Natalie Rae, and Robyn Hubbard. The work includes elements of spoken word into the overall sound score.
Tickets are $10. Due to our limited seating, we highly buy a ticket online prior to the show! This performance may not be appropriate for youth under 14 years old.
Howe has lived in the Roaring Fork Valley for a number of years teaching yoga and co-curating The Salon, Writ Large and the Poetry Brothel for Justice Snow’s in Aspen. She danced with the José Limón Dance Company in New York City, served as faculty at the Laban/Bartenieff Institute and performed with renowned tabla player Zakir Hussain. Her original choreography has been performed internationally and locally. Howe’s interest the herd mentality, that is, making decisions based upon the actions of others, has taken her deep into this particular work. “I am influenced by the tipping point that makes the masses change the course of their destiny,” reflects Howe. “What causes a herd of cattle to stampede, the migrating sandhill cranes to take off like a blanket at the same moment, schools of fish changing directions to the marvel of the murmuration of flock.”
