Perpetual Motion Dance presents a modern fable about a family in transition and a young girl traversing turbulent fantasy lands to reach her isolated parents. This will be the first story-based production in the company’s sixteen-year history and is family friendly. Cora’s Door is a story told through the imagination of a child as she explores hidden family secrets of past and present. Following their 2017 residency at Meow Wolf in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Perpetual Motion’s creative team was inspired to build on the resulting fantastical elements to craft a story that speaks to adults and kids alike.
Oklahoma City’s only modern and aerial dance company, employs home grown professional dance artists who diligently work through the process of experimentation and rehearsal to create original works that draw the audience into new state of awareness. These concerts, funded in part by a matching grant from the Oklahoma Arts Council, and additionally by donors and ticket sales, tour the state to bring this unique art form to a variety of settings including college, rural and urban audiences. Additional support provided by The Kirkpatrick Family Fund.
Cora’s Door features choreography created by artistic director Michelle Moeller and company members Emily Dawson, Paige Fischer, Kayla Jenkins, Hannah McKeachnie, Alana Murray, Amy Nevius and Caitlin Robinson.
The company will be presenting excerpts from Cora's Door at the House of Eternal Return June 21st - 24th in Santa Fe, New Mexico!
In addition to performances, join the staff of PMD for a modern master class 12-1:30 and an aerial workshop 2:00-3:30 on June 25th.
