Chop Shop: Bodies of Work

Spectrum Dance Theater's Donald Byrd doesn't perform very often any more, but when he does, he still brings down the house. His turn as the dramatic interlocutor in Chekhovian Resolution, his multimedia investigation of the ongoing disputes between Israel and Palestine, was a major driver in the success of that 2008 work. Eva Stone has him onstage this weekend as part of her Chop Shop showcase, and the program is already full of exciting dance artists from here and beyond. Included are locals Jason Ohlberg, Ellie Sandstrom and Cyrus Khambatta, along with visitors from Portland, Vancouver, BC, and NYC. Byrd is the frosting on a really big cake. SANDRA KURTZ
