Covert Ops (working title) is a New Dance piece inspired by the appointment of first-female CIA director Gina Haspel, "alternative facts", fragmentation, sincerity and artifice. Through movement and sound, with text developed in collaboration with poet Alison Moncrief Bromage, Covert Ops explores truths and lies and how the performative body highlights the murky space in between. It's about the stories we tell ourselves to understand and explain our experiences in the world. *Photos by Sean Smuda and Jim Smith

Amber Sloan will premiere FourD, a choreographic investigation of the three dimensions of space - length, breadth, and depth - plus time. This dynamic work utilizes the mathematical equation of velocity to propel four dancers through ever shifting patterns and spatial pathways. Conflict emerges as Sloan questions what happens when something or someone stands in the way of forward momentum. How much force is needed to combat a roadblock and what happens to the unused energy of a failed attempt to progress? *Photo by Hope Davis
