Artistic Director Deborah Abel has created Modern Dance concerts of her own choreography since 1992. In 2010, Abel was awarded the Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist Fellowship in Choreography. Calling to you was a dance drama that explored the integration of ancient cultural wisdom into our modern understanding of human connection. The work was aimed at the part of us that is longing: longing to be the lover and the beloved, longing for connection with our truest selves and with others. Through an ecumenical perspective that was a meld of western views of love and human relationships and eastern bhakti philosophy, the dances explored the possibility of personal wholeness, and of deep, loving partnerships, families, and communities.
The company’s resident composer, Lee Perlman, collaborated to create original works of live music, which evolve in conversation with the choreography. The concert was conceived as a whole, creating a universe into which the audience was invited to enter.
