March 2nd & 3rd

Baltimore Theatre Project

 Deep Vision Dance Company and ASEID Contemporary Dance Company collide for an eclectic evening of contemporary dance highlighting their unique styles, brilliance, virtuosic range, and nuanced splendor.  Featuring choreography by Artistic Directors Nicole A. Martinell and Alison Seidenstricker, respectively, as well as collaborations with dancers, choreographers, visual artists, and musicians from District of Columbia and Maryland, COLLIDE captivates audiences in a winding journey through original works. 

Pushing boundaries in Baltimore since 2011, Deep Vision Dance Company (DVDC) thrives on cultivating immersive and collaborative dance experiences that engage and inspire the community.  DVDC is propelled by Founder/Artistic Director, Nicole A. Martinell’s passion for the creative process.  Her works plunge audiences into unique worlds, highlighting a flux of emotion and challenging one’s view of reality.

Celebrating their return to Theatre Project, DVDC shares three new duets of mysterious beauty and wit. Cadence, or lack thereof illuminates the comically awkward do-si-do of individuals attempting to connect their inner rhythms to each other’s habitual grooves.  In the subtext, this work teasingly portrays dancers in the creative process.  Tender Root explores the transformative cycle of organic matter through images of blooming, leaves unfurling, and vines weaving as two bodies seamlessly morph and create new forms.  Finally, The Somethings in My Mind portrays the strange, yet enchanting, burden of one’s thoughts, revealing what transpires when one becomes consumed by their mental constructs.  Works feature collaborations with Samantha Hopkins and Rachel Moore (dancers), Malcolm Shute (Artistic Director/choreographer/composer, Human Landscape Dance), Lindsay D'Andelet (visual artist), Kendra Shapanus (costume designer), and Griff Beheler (musician).   

 Relocating to Baltimore after six seasons in New York City, ASEID Dance is excited to make their debut in the Baltimore Community.  Artistic Director, Alison Seidenstricker created ASEID Dance in 2004 with the pursuit of innovative dance concepts through the collaborative fusion of movement styles and artistic views.  The energy of ASEID Dance comes from the creative spirit of its diverse membership. At the core of the company is the magnetic spirit of the director, Seidenstricker, who blends her artistic vision with that of her dancers to create movement that embodies and celebrates diversity and collaboration.  

 Seidenstricker’s newest creations, currently untitled, explore the multifaceted response to the different changes that occur in one’s life.  The different threads of individual experience ultimately interweave through the commonality of shared experience of human response.
