Spectrum Dance Theater

Donald Byrd is celebrating his tenth anniversary as artistic director of Spectrum Dance Theater by doing more of what he's done all along--present dance that pushes the edges of the art form. For the Fall Studio Series, he's got a pair of works by local choreographers Olivier Wevers (the premiere of Back, Sack and Crack) and Crispin Spaeth (a reprise of Only You); and he's adding a premiere of his own (A Meeting Place). Wevers' fluid and sensual style, in a piece examining gender identity and politics, will fit easily next to Byrd's signature high-intensity vocabulary. Spaeth's more quirky physicality, in a dance made originally as a valentine for composer Dale Sather, should make a sweet intermezzo between the two. SANDRA KURTZ [See Sandra's review.]
