Jungian Duality

UCSB Santa Barbara Dance Theater’s January concert is motivated by Carl Jung’s theory of anima, the inner feminine personality of a man, and animus, a woman’s inner masculine personality. Jung believed both are a source of creativity. In these days of gender fluidity, the subject resonates, perhaps more than ever. The show is really a tribute to the contributions of women to dance, and includes 3 new pieces: guest choregrapher Rebecca Lemme’s “Witnesse,” new UCSB Assistant Dance Professor Brandon Whited’s “Petit Pas” and SBDT artistic director Christopher Pilafian’s “Mystique.” Faculty member Nancy Colahan’s restaging of Jane Dudley’s classic solo Flamenco piece “Cante Flamenco,” which Dudley set on Nancy in 1990, rounds out the concert.
January 19th – 22nd at Hatlen Theater.
