Continuum Dance Theater
Continuum Dance Theater (CDT) is an all female professional dance company skilled at turning alternative venues into intimate performance happenings. Led by Founding Artistic Director and Choreographer, Sarah Parker, CDT’s work provides new perspective on subjects of social and personal examination, delving into stereotypes of the human character and analyzing, through movement, alternative views of our contemporary generation.
About the Process
After a year of city-wide research and countless hours in the studio in movement, Continuum’s cast each take on a character constructed from the company’s personal interviews with community members. Their stories unfold in a single evening through the fusion of dance and theater performance art. Diving into the human psyche and deconstructing social archetypes, Continuum follows the manifestations of drive, exploring what makes us tick, how we are motivated as individuals and as a society and ultimately what addictions can take hold when the line is crossed from striving towards a goal of allowing your objectives to take hold of your life.
