Tickets are $25 ($15 students/seniors)and can be purchased at https://www.pigeonwingdance.com/pwd/plexus.   In Plexus: a work in knots, Princess Grace Award-winning choreographer Gabrielle Lamb creates a complex ecosystem of interdependent bodies, a mysterious network of fluctuating loyalties built upon an unsteady balance of power.

In Plexus: a work in knots, Princess Grace Award-winning choreographer Gabrielle Lamb creates a complex ecosystem of interdependent bodies, a mysterious network of fluctuating loyalties built upon an unsteady balance of power. This world premiere is performed by the seven members of Pigeonwing Dance - Lamb's own NYC-based company - and set to a commissioned electroacoustic score from composer James Budinich that mixes traditional instruments with sounds from found objects.
 
"Plexus explores and embodies the importance of interdependence," said Lamb. "Western culture has traditionally prized individuality, encouraging humans to sever our obligations to each other---then further dividing us into a separate body and mind. This work reintegrates body and mind, then coordinates multiple bodies as linked, interlocking parts of a larger whole." 
 
Plexus: a work in knots features lighting design by Barry Steele and costumes by Christine Darch, and is performed by Cody Berkeley, Robin Cantrell, Giovanna Gamna, Tiffany Mangulabnan, Patrick O'Brien, Victoria Sames, Kailei Sin.
 
"This was full-body dancing, not in an aggressive sense but in that every limb and finger and eyelash of every dancer was engaged in expression."
--San Francisco Chronicle
 
Gabrielle Lamb, the winner of a Princess Grace Award, is an NYC-based choreographer. A native of Savannah, GA, she was a longtime soloist at Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, touring the world in works by classical and contemporary masters. DANCE Magazine described her as "a dancer of stunning clarity who illuminates the smallest details-qualities she brings to the dances she makes, too". Her work has been presented by the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, BalletX, Ballet Collective, Sacramento Ballet, Ballet Austin, Ballet Memphis, Jacob's Pillow, and Dance on Camera at Lincoln Center. She has won fellowships and competitions at Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Milwaukee Ballet, the Banff Centre, and NY City Center, as well as the S&R Foundation's Grand Prize Washington Award. In 2018, she was selected to create for ABT's Choreographic Incubator.
