Composer: Daniel Hass
Dancer: Eugenia Zinovieva
Musician: Daniel Hass (cello)

Choreographer Katie Bickford makers her RDP debut with a solo for dancer Eugenia Zinovieva, also making her debut with the project.

“With my piece 'Only One Flower in a Field' I wanted to evoke the experience of unity and joy that comes out of being completely alone. In writing for a single instrument, I wanted to explore a state of meditation, focusing on an internal sensation that begins in total isolation but ultimately leads to a sense of universality and connectedness. 

Together with the corporeal experience of dance, I hope the piece is like a reminder of the feeling of being a human on this earth—like a flower in a field, like our earth itself in the massive cosmos.” -Daniel Hass, Composer

Choreographer Ruka White makes his RDP debut with a small ensemble piece featuring the women of Revolve. RDP composer/musician Cameron. MacIntosh leads a jazz quartet in "Night In Tunisia", providing a lively soundtrack to this fun collaboration.

Arrangement: Cameron MacIntosh 
Dancers: Kirsten Evans, Kailee Felix, Tegan Rich, Brenna Zgodić, Eugenia Zinovieva

"My work “Press-On Nails” is my tribute and dedication to every woman, everywhere. Women continue to fight and persevere against the ever-present force of a toxic patriarchy which preys upon their autonomy and sovereignty  as the embodiment of the Divine Feminine. I say press-on, in style, and in flair for you are not alone!” -Ruka White
