School of Dance Assistant Visiting Professor, Molly Heller, presents "very vary", sponsored by loveDANCEmore. "very vary" chapters the remembered, imagined and future lives of these six performers: Florian Alberge, Nick Blaylock, and Marissa Mooney; and, courtesy of Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company, Yebel Gallegos, Mary Lyn Graves and Melissa Younker. Throughout the work, Heller reveals the performers' biographies with both care and subtlety, while challenging the audience and space with rapid delivery. With a love for decoration and complications within choreographic structure, Heller enlivens the space by framing created scenes. These framed moments allow the performers and audience to enter into a scenario where story-telling emerges. These scenarios, much like chapters of a pop-up book, evoke a dimensional narrative that is at times both literal and nonsensical. very vary will also include collaborations with composer Mike Wall, visual artist Gretchen Reynolds, print maker Kate Thomas, and lighting designer Vellachi Ganesan.
