Named among “Best Dance Performances of 2016” by The Huffington Post and called “gorgeous [and] exquisite” by Broadway World, Nimbus Dance Works brings its unique brand of exquisitely rendered, highly physical, and emotionally accessible dance to SOPAC. The program includes a much-anticipated world premiere collaboration between Nimbus Dance Works Artistic Director Samuel Pott and Grammy-nominated Timothy Eriksen (Cold Mountain, Academy Awards) who was called “one of the best singers in music” by T-Bone Burnette. Eriksen’s distinctive sound is grounded in the roots tradition of sacred harp singing and early Appalachian Folk – earthy, incessant, and guttural. Eriksen’s hypnotic sound underscores Pott’s virtuosic and high-energy choreography, which rides on top of as if propelled by the meditative vibrations of Eriksen’s vocalizations. The performance also includes two works from the company’s repertory of commissions by leading international dancemakers, including Pedro Ruiz’s Danzon (Cuba) and Huang Yi’s Shadow of Sound (Taiwan).
