Relationships, headless figures and spiritual paradigms will be among the topics explored during the 940 Dance Company's spring concert tonight and Saturday.
The Lawrence Arts Center's professional company will perform at 7:30 p.m. both nights at the center, 940 N.H.
Among the featured works:
¢ "Resilience," a new sextet choreographed by Susan Rieger, the company's artistic director. The piece was inspired by a sculpture of 12 headless figures at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Mo.
¢ "Chair Suite," also by Rieger, in which dancers interact with a chair that represents patterns of a relationship.
¢ "Lifeboat" by Non Edwards, which deals with the idea of living with comedy in the atomic age.
¢ "Was Bleibt," by Bobbi Foudree, a quartet in which dancers interact in a removed, distant manner.
"This concert has humor, intelligence and courageous looks at many areas of life and the voices of five experienced choreographers," Rieger says.
Tickets are $13 for adults and $7.50 for students and seniors.
