Circumvent: Dance in the Round

  • White Box Live Arts Theater 2590 Truxtun Rd, Upstairs San Diego, CA 92106 USA (map)

Blythe Barton Dance returns to the White Box Live Arts Theater, shifting space and perspective to bring athletic and alluring choreography right to the audience. Circumvent rekindles the exciting energy of last year's in-the-round dance experience. Blythe Barton Dance combines grand, sweeping choreography that fills the stage, reverberating with dynamic pressure and intimate relationships, making viewers lean forward in their seats. Experience the power of BBD up close and personal in the transformed White Box venue -- a new year in a new configuration, flipping dancers and viewers on edge.

Circumvent creates panoramas of dance that envelop audiences in the physicality of movement. Kris Eitland of wrote of last year's concert, "Barton assembles some of the best dancers in town and re-configures the White Box ... from a square to elongated galley shape. The transformation allows us to view three mesmerizing dances as landscapes yet sit within inches of the action."
