Local artists Tara Dyberg and Ashleigh Miller co-present two evenings of Dance, Music, and Multimedia at Velocity Dance Center. Through original choreography by directors Dyberg & Miller, musical composition by Barry Sebastian and Miller, and graphic designs by Vincent Hill and Miller, the evening weaves through it’s program compiled of dual visions from the two choreographers.
About "Double Vision" ‐ The performances are a split bill, divided in near equal halves with Miller opening the show, and Dyberg closing. Two separate works with two performance topics are showcased by each choreographer, thus the doubled visions of Dyberg/Miller. One topic tackles the ever-emerging complications of our finding and maintaining a balance of mental health, the other serves as a lens to peer through, looking at youths today and their relationships to themselves and the world they live in. This double-take on subject matters is similarly expressed through the shared movement styles and choreographic approaches of Dyberg/Miller, producing a fresh and contemporary evening of dance and film. The lending of separate art mediums in collaboration with one another has the combined effect of a seamless evening of dance, music and projections that stands as representation of the emerging talent and diversity of working artists in Seattle.
