Dani Cole will show "land gone”, an investigation of the ironies of freedom. Drawing from unconventional depictions of the Statue of Liberty, "land gone” investigates the ironies of freedom. How is freedom, the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance, dually actualized and not actualized among democratic and societal structures? How can the dancing body, seemingly bound by physical limitations, socialization, and self-restraint, recognize parameters and work towards open engagement with movement, the self, and others in the space?

He has set a piece on the Steffi Nossen Dance Company for this concert titles Caught in Still Life. This piece observes the concept of parallel realities embedded in the subconscious mind. It explores the descent into the subconscious and the meeting point of the multi-layered dimensions of a single persona. The work questions: What happens when we are confronted with the other realities of ourselves? Are the other versions of ourselves our allies or enemies? And how do we know which state of mind is the TRUE reality? Watch and decide. Check out his company URBAN/TRIBE:www.urban-tribe.org
