A little help from some Friends

Santa Barbara Dance Theater… and Friends. At the Lobero Theater May 4th. Choreographers Emily Schoen, who last appeared in Santa B with Keigwin + Co., and Joshua Beamish, founder of Vancouver based MOVE: the company, set 2 works on SBDT for this continuation of their 40th season. Schoen’s “A Jointed Affair” was  a dark delight and Mr. Beamish’s new “Salt” was a mesmerizingly atmospheric dip into the dystopian. Also on the bill was SBDT Artistic Director Christopher Pilafian’s hit from earlier this year, “Strange Attractor.” A show filled with great choreography, dancing and music, this was another exemplar of the richness of this community’s performing arts scene!
