FLIGHT OF STEPS 2005
JULY 15, 16 & 17 and JULY 20-24

Newport's Island Moving Co. will take the stage at Flight of Steps, the Company's outdoor dance series at Fort Adams for eight performances July 15-17 and July 20-24. On July 15 though 17, along with Island Moving Co, Flight of Steps will feature the California-based dance company, Connor/Noble Dance Company. Noble and Connor performed at last year's Flight of Steps and their distinctive, athletic duets and solos made them a big hit with the audience. Hailing from Newport's Japanese Sister City Shimoda Japan, the Murayama sisters will perform two Japanese dances, Haru-no-Umi (the sea in springtime) accompanied by Japanese harp & flute and Yanagi-no-Ame (Rain on a Willow Tree) with music from Shamisen or three-string guitar. Island Moving Co will perform Miki Ohlsen's powerful dance for three, Ruth...less, to music by Philip Glass.

Also on the weekend of July 15-17, Flight of Steps will include separate performances of The Invisible Sins of Fort Adams, a haunting dance theatre work created for the Company's Open for Dancing festival in 2004 by New York choreographer Noemie Lafrance.

On July 20 through 24 performances will showcase the talents of Company choreographers with performances by the Island Moving Co. dancers. Miki Ohlsen creates a new work for nine dancers to music by Rachel's and presents sections of Hora Cero, to Astor Piazzolla's tangos. Michael Bolger reworks his duet, folded hands, warm heart, choreographed for himself and Eva Marie Pacheco. Ruth...less, set to music by Philip Glass, will also be on this program.
