Invasion, our new sci-fi work, choreographed by Louise Reichlin premiered with the multimedia of Audri Phillips at LA Theater Center Oct 2&3, 2015 at 7:00 pm. This piece is sci-fi, and has to do with what happens when we are invaded by another species (or metaphorically, what happens when very diverse qualities from diverse cultures come together). Who changes who? What is the result? The piece begins with 2 beings that see a carefree, almost childlike person. They interact, and all 3 are now part of the "beings". Next is a duet of love and great sadness that is passed on to the beings. Last is a passionate Tango that is sexual and violent. They all merge in the electrifying ending.


We take it to APAP to showcase January 16 and 17. See the schedule and locations on the right. For those in Southern CA, you can enjoy performances of Invasion here:


1/23/16- 7:30 pm. Awakenings and Beginnings Dance Festival, Diavolo, Los Angeles


2/5-6/16 - 8:00 pm. So Cal Dance Invitational, Golden West College, Huntington Beach


2/21/16- 2:00 pm. HHII Festival, Center Stage Theatre, Santa Barbara

In January we begin our third educational residency at Fairgrove Academy  (La Puente Hacienda Heights) with 5 of their middle school classes. We work with them 4 weeks and they perform ‘world’ dances which this year come from Africa, Mexico, Ireland, Italy, and the USA. Our company performs Invasion and Call From the Afterlife on the program on February 11. This is funded in part by a matching grant from County Supervisor Don Knabe’s Arts Education Partnership.


We return and again partner with Angels Gate Cultural Center at the New Academy of Science and Art, this time with a curriculum project based on The Patchwork Girl of Oz with their first grades.
