Selah Dance Collective presents

Sound and Smoke

A Dance Concert by Meredith Ventura

January 12-14, 2024

Selah Dance Collective presents Sound and Smoke, an interdisciplinary exploration of early modern dance and its intersections with Weimar-era cabaret and "dances of death" as they appear throughout history, particularly in art and literature. This production blends popular culture and music with references to historical, literary, and avant-garde figures and was created in collaboration with dramaturg Cassie Archer and the dancers.

What critics are saying about Sound and Smoke: "Ventura’s work in Sound and Smoke is poignant, deeply researched across the span of history, and intricately choreographed, ultimately creating an exciting, unnerving, and thought-provoking experience."
