CONTEMPORARY DANCE

"The Seattle dance troupe, in a multiyear residency at Kirkland Performance Center, premieres Cyrus Khambatta’s “Truth and Betrayal” on Friday. The piece spins questions of trust and deception into a tangy affair with a lightly cruel edge. Khambatta’s five young dancers, most new to the troupe, bring a lithe, elegant, gymnastic twist to their entanglements. Three older Khambatta works are also on the program."

- The Seattle Times

The five-member Seattle based company, led by Artistic Director Cyrus Khambatta, contrasts rigorous partnering and athletic movement with authentic human content to create an emotionally moving dance, which is both visually beautiful and physically demanding. The company will perform three pieces: A Moment Repeated, Ashutosh,and the world-premiere of Truth & Betrayal.
