“When pretenses and facades are stripped away, we are all the same – we have the same ‘bare bones’.”
As if I needed any encouragement to attend another CORE Contemporary Dance show, Director Kelli Leighton once again presents a theme that I simply cannot miss! The older I get, the more I come to realize that despite how complicated life seems, it really is pretty simple. We are trained to surround ourselves with materialistic, self-serving, unnecessary ‘things’ (objects, people, ideals) that distract us from this very simple fact: we are all made up of the same matter and are all here just trying to live the best we know how. This show explores this fundamental human connection, imploring us all to recognize that our differences lie on the outside and the freedom found in learning to accept this… and move on.
If you are one of those people that aren’t into Dance or Theatre performances, I encourage you to come to one of CORE’s shows. With simple themes that we can all identify with, along with music we all know, the dancers poetically express things through movements that tap into your emotions.
Let me put it this way: Every single show by CORE sells out. Grab a friend (or a few) and try something new.
This show can be seen this Thursday, Friday or Saturday only (March 13-15). For more details or to get your tickets, visit the Sacramento365 event page.
