About the concert
Santa Barbara Dance Theater is back under the new Artistic Direction of Brandon Whited. The 2022 Season marks SBDT’s 45th Anniversary Season.
This performance will feature two new works by Prof. Whited, with Guest Choreography by Nancy Colahan (UCSB, Senior Lecturer), and Weslie Ching (UCSB Dance Alum). Shifting the creative development model of the company more toward a project-based company Brandon is excited to bring in professional dancers from near and far to engage with the UCSB campus and greater Santa Barbara arts community. SBDT performs January 13-16 at Center Stage Theater in downtown Santa Barbara.
Featured dancers: Nicole Powell (Carpinteria, CA), Paige Amicon (Los Angeles, CA), Miche Wong (San Francisco, CA), and Calder White (Vancouver/Toronto), with apprentice-understudy Riley Haley (UCSB Dance class of 2024).
The concert program consists of two solos by Nancy Colahan—excerpts from Pandemic Suite, created via zoom last year; a duet—I Don’t Exist Anymore, by Weslie Ching. Brandon Whited offers to Harbor—developed in winter of 2020 and completed this season, as well as a new quartet—ARENA, or 1 of 4 & 4 of 1. The concert features Lighting and Production Design by Michael Klaers.
