Higher Ground Festival

An Eastern West - Dance, Music and Vocals

A celebration of folk music and dance set to live music by the YY Sisters.  The work explores traditional folk dancing, as well as the fusion of folk with contemporary movement staged and choreographed by Emily Vartanian.

Knotted - Dance & Spoken Word

This new work intertwines spoken word poetry with interpretive dance.  The words, empty space, and dancers' bodies meld in a multi-sensory interpretation of the poem, highlighting the relationship between the language itself and the reactional and instinctual movements of the body.


Performed by Saki Masuda, Jaisson Restrepo, Kierstyn Sharrow, Sandra Susser, and Emily Smyth Vartanian

Original poem by Sandra Susser and choreography by Emily Smyth Vartanian
