CAMBRIDGE, MA- October 24, 2017- The Dance Complex presents elephant JANE dance, two evenings of
choreography by artistic director Heidi Henderson, Saturday, November 11th at 8pm, and Sunday, November 12th at 7pm.

Henderson describes the evenings’ dances as “sadness and laughter; task, and quiet exactitude mixed with big messy dancing”. The choreography is accompanied by musical selections including Schubert, Bowie, Nirvana, Frampton, and Timberlake.

elephant JANE dance will present four pieces from the company’s repertory including: Pine (2010) which juxtaposes an ultra-slow solo, danced mostly in place, with a wide ranging, spilling duet; Judgy, a new solo, work-in-progress that premiered in 2017 at Redfern Arts at Keene; Imagine us in silver (2009) which explores repetition and audience engagement; and Leslie (2015) a reductive work, without grandness nor message.

Henderson will create a fifth work to be included in the program which will be developed through workshop opportunities open to the greater Boston/Cambridge dance community and will engage students from the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School. The workshops will explore themes of mapping, finding North, finding place, and finding oneself among one’s own. Workshops will take place in the week leading up to the performances.

Company members of elephant JANE dance performing include Heidi Henderson, Christina Robson, Alex Springer, Edward Rice, and Sarah Gibbons. Their eclectic and robust backgrounds include performing with Bill T Jones/Arnie Zane Company, David Dorfman Dance, Monica Bill Barnes and Company, and Doug Varone and Dancers.

Tickets for elephant JANE dance are available at a discounted rate online prior to the performances at; tickets purchased at the door are subject to availability at full price.

Henderson’s workshops opportunities will be held on November 8th 8-10pm and November 9th 7-9pm.
Additionally, Henderson will teach The Dance Complex’s Deep Dance Series class on Monday, November 6th
from 10am-12pm
