SoMar Dance Works is known for its artistry, physicality, wit, and creativity. Their new collection of contemporary choreography, Circles and Cycles, features a company of fifteen dancers and live music by composer/musicians Tim Theisen and Andy Hasenpflug. Circles and Cycles explores the nature of the most fundamental of shapes, the circle. The concert will be performed “in-the-round” so every chair is a front row seat.
