MotionTheatre Dance Company announces “Journey” a dance production to be presented Sunday May 5, 2019 at 2pm and 7 pm at Center Stage Theater, Santa Barbara,CA. New contemporary ballet and modern dance choreography will be on the program including the children’s dance program of Santa Barbara Movement Arts. Award winning artist Maria Rendina Frantz will premiere “Journey” a theatrical and humorous dance to musical selections by Italian composer Nino Rota. Also premiering is Rendina’s complete work “Trois Saintes de la Mer” choreographed to “Moonlight Sonata” by Ludwig van Beethoven. Three talented choreographers emerging from the UCSB dance program will present three exciting, original contemporary works you won’t want to miss. Kelly O’Connor created a duet “o p e n s p a c e s” on the concepts of self-awareness, and the relationship between inner-space and outer-space to music by Nicolas Jar. “Locate” is a continuation of a contemporary ballet piece by Sammy Gerraty while studying the effects of human noise pollution on the lives of marine mammals, and seeks to spread awareness about its devastating impacts.  “Turn It On, Turn It Off” choreographed and performed by Gianna Burright we witness the performer remember, relive and reclaim, things she never got a chance to say-but her on her terms, the terms of her body. Also joining the troupe is Tara McAnich and Maia Mook. Come and discover the authentic quality and rare beauty of the Motion Theatre Dance Company. You’ll be pleasantly surprised!

Sunday May 5, at 2:00 pm and Sunday, May 5 at 7:00 pm
