About The Winter Series

Following four sold-out performances of Joshua L. Peugh's Aladdin, Habibi in the
Elevator Project at AT&T Performing Arts Center in October, Dark Circles Contemporary Dance moves to WaterTower Theatre as the Guest Company in Residence for a Winter Series featuring three world premieres centering on gay identity in America. The new works will explore gay narratives, themes, and ideas and will be performed by a mostly queer company of dancers. Dark Circles has commissioned budding gay choreographers Mark Caserta, Eoghan Dillon, and Mikey Morado for the program. A new creation by Peugh—in collaboration with queer multimedia artist Brian Kenny—closes the evening.

Although many dancers and choreographers identify as gay, they are often asked to overlook their sexual identity within choreography and to dance and create roles involving heterosexual partnering in works that highlight hetero-normative situations and themes. Dark Circles' Winter Series will provide a chance for its four choreographers to explore more authentic personal narratives, and in the process give the LGBTQ community of Dallas a chance to see themselves truthfully and authentically represented on stage.
