2015 Performances

Save the date: OCTOBER 23-25, 2015

As part of the Creative Residency granted to Karin by Velocity Dance Center, a new work will be created at the end this month with core KSD dancers and professional Seattle community dancers. KSD is pleased to present this new creation to you in October along with an expanded re staging of our critically acclaimed work : “Dormant, Exploding Syndrome & Ashcloud”. Both pieces will feature our collaboration with the talented Sam Boshnack Quintet. Exciting developments are currently taking shape so mark your calendars early: we’re sure this will be a memorable and moving experience.

You are invited to join us on June 18th, 2015 at Raisbeck Performance Hall in Seattle for the Seattle International Dance Festival where Karin Stevens will perform with other local talents in an evening curated by festival director Cyrus Khambatta and choreographer Erin Nichole Boyt. The evening centers on thematic work and the creation of social dialogue in our region. KSD believes that movement is a powerful universal language and we are always inspired to find new ways to collaborate locally and internationally.

We’ve been busy preparing for the just completed tour to Montana where we performed with the Sam Boshnack Quintet. Collaboration and communication through movement are core beliefs of our company and we’re thankful to the Glacier Symphony and Chorale for the opportunity to share our art with new audiences in Big Sky Country.

Artist Statement

Movement is the impetus as life is the content. Through layers of movement is the thread of truth; the sole story, the shape and texture of feeling and meaning. Beneath the motion is etched the lines of our grief and grandeur in this 21st century imperfect, moving human art form. The purpose of our relationship to creation is revealed. Beautiful. Infinite. Moving. Live. Turbulent. Grace.

“Karin is the consummate artist professional: easy to work with, warm, enthusiastic, imaginative, and above of all, supremely competent. The result… a memorable experience for performers and audiences alike.”

-John Zoltek Music Director, Glacier Symphony and Festival Amadeus Whitefish, Montana
