Amour, Where Are You?, a new work of dance theater, and two other performance art pieces are scheduled Friday and Saturday, March 13th and 14th at Highways Performance Space, 1651 18th St., Santa Monica.
The main work scheduled at 8:30 p.m. will be accompanied by a pre-show of two performance pieces at 8 p.m.
The dance theater performance was conceived and choreographed by Nathalie Broizat and features her six-member company. Admission is $20, $15 for students, seniors and Highways members. Reservations, (310) 315-1459, or www.highwaysperformance.org/.
Dancer/choreographer Broizat performs with Jarred Cairns, Marnie Castor, Alexis Hunt, Ariadna Rodriguez and Clint Steinhauser in the new movement-based dance theater piece Amour, Where Are You?
“Act One deals with the broken heart and the grieving heart,” Broizat explains about her non-narrative piece. “Act Two deals with the healing heart and the heart that is able to love again.”
Broizat graduated from Paris Dance University , subsequently attending New York’s Laban/Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies as a Fulbright Scholar. She has made Los Angeles her home since 2003.
A few of the many performances pieces she has created include “Delusion,” “Laugh is Life,” “To Love and To Hold,” “Destiny,” “Chouchou,” and “No Regrets.” Her works have been performed extensively at venues throughout Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago and at the University of Mississippi.
The cast members specialize in dance, music and performance art. All, including Broizat, are also members of the Rachel Rosenthal Company.
The two performances scheduled prior to Broizat’s at Highways include a piece by visual artist Alexis Hunt and a short solo by vocalist Marnie Castor entitled “I Love You,” featuring love songs of Patsy Cline.
