Brainstorming various aspects of the concept of time marked the impetus of MamLuft&Co. Dance’s most recent work, /SHIFT/, premiering at the Aronoff Center this weekend.
/SHIFT/ begins with suggestions of a catastrophic event, albeit an undefined one that has already taken place before the curtain even rises. It could have been an apocalypse, a change of power, an epidemic, a plane crash, even a personal trauma; the details are left up to the audience to decide.
Yes, there’s thinking involved. But at heart, /SHIFT/ also explores the emotional bonds of community and relationships — and ultimately offers hope.
MamLuft&Co. Dance presents /SHIFT/ at the Aronoff Center Friday and Saturday. Tickets: 513-621-ARTS or cincinnatiarts.org.
