KATY HAGELIN dance project company will present EXPOSURE in September 2017 (more info to come!). EXPOSURE is a contemporary ballet and modern dance show where four choreographers and ten company dancers will present work exploring imbalances within society and offer ideas, hope and empowerment for change. The goal is to not only "expose" truth and hope about what we examine, but we also desire to place ourselves within our community and become "exposed" ourselves -revealing what is inside our own hearts desires and struggles as human beings. Katy Hagelin will examine the illusion of happiness through materialism and social media and the freedom that comes from recognizing it and breaking away from it. After traveling to Punta Cana in The Dominican Republic, Victoria Gutierrez was struck by the excessive wealth being put into tourism and the abject poverty of the natives. Her piece brings awareness to how the economic structure of the country effects the people of Punta Cana. The 2016 election seemed to expose the deep division that exists within our country with both sides struggling to understand one another; Megan Becker's piece explores the tension between these two groups and possibility for unity despite differences. Rachel Gonsalves will be remounting an excerpt of Wade Walthall's piece B-IV, which explores the diversity of the individual through ten solo's using both classical and contemporary movement. We want our audiences to leave the show informed and encouraged to continue to making positive changes in the world around them. We feel as artists, it is important to expose what our culture is dealing with in regards to this current day and age. It is one of our goals to translate truths and make present history more understandable.
