kDub Dance Returns Home
Having recently toured to New York City and points north (SF), contemporary choreographer Kevin Williamson brings his LA-based company kDub Dance to Highways Performance Space in Santa Monica this weekend for three shows. As part of Highways’ BEHOLD: A Queer Performance Festival, Williamson will present LIMINAL BUST in its southern California premiere. With music by electronic cellist Eric Mason and lighting by Mason T. Barker, promotional materials explain that the new work “exposes our basic needs in what appears to be an ever-changing, fluorescent filled landscape of headlines, storylines, and status updates.”
With a cast that includes the strong performers Kate Hutter, Nick Heitzeberg, Andrea Sobke, Alexandria Yalj and Zsolt Banki, LIMINAL BUST explodes, surges and flies toward new discoveries on the physical landscape that we laypersons call the stage.
Sounds potentially violent, but the choreographer has danced around town, teaches locally and has performed internationally with some familiar and outstanding artists.
