Spectrum Dance Theater’s first OCCURRENCE was presented at La Usina del Arte in Buenos Aires, Argentina on March 20, 2016. OCCURRENCE # 1, was created as the culminating public presentation of a week-long U.S. Embassy in Buenos Aires sponsored residency. Modeled on a Merce Cunningham EVENT, described as “presented without intermission…consist[ing] of complete dances, excerpts of dances from the repertory, and often new sequences arranged for [a] particular performance and place, with the possibility of several separate activities happening all at the same time.”

Donald Byrd’s dance reimagining of Iolanta based on the lesser known opera of the same name by Tchaikovsky. In this new contemporary dance theater work, Donald Byrd will explore the ideas of sight vs. insight, light vs enlightenment and love as both a violation/intrusion and an awakening.
