This concert features two distinctly different communities: The long-awaited epic work, The Factory Project, reflects the story of a community within the confines of a factory. Life, death, work, suspicion, relationships, and more exist in abundance inside an elderly worn-out building.
The Factory Project seems to have a life of its own. It is story based, yet open for abstracted ideas, images, designs, and sounds. It’s intriguing . . . so many possibilities.
We’ve addressed The Factory Project for quite some time and now, finally, we are into production status. This work was initiated by two different solos that Kista created. Then, a third solo was added and it became a 15-minute dance titled The Shades Trilogy. And now, groups of people are intertwined throughout a full-length work reflecting the story of a community within the confines of a factory.
Pitted Post, WY elicits the essence of rural Wyoming: fence posts, critters (in the air and on the ground), sloping hills, grass, sky.... The shared time and space of this community is vast, yet sparse.
Pitted Post, WY began as a movement experience for Kista’s students. Because of their marvelous understandings and performance of the dance, it is now included in the KTI repertory.
