The Multiplicity of Us

  - 04.24.22
Friday, April 22 @ 7:30pm, Saturday, April 23 @ 2pm and 7:30pm

RKDC premieres a new work by choreographer and Artistic Director Regina Klenjoski, “The Multiplicity of Us.” The dance work features a collaboration with British composer Aurelie Webb and performances by Wichita professional dancers Aviance Battles, Elleigh McClelland, Rhiannon Vieyra, and Rile Reavis.

“The Multiplicity of Us” is abstract storytelling – through poetry, text, and movement – examining the sometimes fluid, sometimes difficult experience of managing our multiple identities or “hats.” Klenjoski began the work thinking about her first-generation, bicultural identity.  Cross-cultural differences, societal expectations, and personal values play huge roles in how we navigate through the formative years and develop our sense of self.  The dance explores the existence of duality in our lives and celebrates the flexibility, humanism, and commonality we find on the way to unity.

OTHER DETAILS:

The performance takes place at the Lux Ballroom in downtown Wichita. The audience will sit in close proximity to the dancers and the experience is limited to 50 patrons per show. The work is 30 minutes long and will feature a 15-minute artist talk/Q & A after each show. The venue will open 30 minutes prior to each show. Enjoy a glass of wine and the company of fellow dancegoers (all proceeds support RKDC’s artists).

RKDC is Wichita’s only professional dance company. Come celebrate the company’s final Wichita performance this season, bring a friend or two, enjoy a glass of wine from Grace Hill Winery, and experience the joy and inspiration of dance art.
