CONVERGE is presented by Tempe Center for the Arts. #tempearts


CONVERGE is a free collaborative event between Desert Dance Theatre and CONDER/dance, as part of TCA’s new national artist residency program, where local artistry is crafted through a national lens. See the riveting performances by both of these Tempe-based dance companies as well as an exciting joint work choreographed by Artistic Director Ronen Koresh of Philadelphia’s Koresh Dance Company. Join us after the performance for a special meet-the-artist reception with both the Artistic Director and company dancers from Koresh Dance Company.

Desert Dance Theatre will present “Inside the Outer Corners” as dancers are joined together by their common humanity. This dance, choreographed by Lisa R. Chow is performed to original music by Step Raptis. “Like a tribe building a community, we evolve and grow as we take that journey through life together.” – Lisa R. Chow


Photographer: Rick Meineke ~ CONDER/dance Dancers: Amy Symonds, Emily Laird, Spencer Dennis, Faith Markovetz, Lauren Jimenez

CONDER/dance will present a work choreographed by Carley Conder titled “Carnage,” an investigation of loss. A group of 5 dancers grapple with change, isolation and endurance all set against the backdrop of Renaissance music and imagery. This brutal yet beautiful work is intentionally embedded in our present communal catastrophe as it seeks to understand what it means to be left behind.
