Kate Weare’s examination of sexuality, Dark Lark (November 6-9) at BAM – Fisher, was framed by a team of collaborators who helped make this work come to life. Special kudos to cellist and composer, Christopher Lancaster who performed an original score live, pulling attention to his own dance. The very intimate and beautiful opening danced by Leslie Kraus accompanied by Lancaster, set the stage. Kraus' musicality and her sense of grounded-ness was lovely to watch. And though there was a great deal of nice dancing throughout, when the end came, there was a bit of question. Hmmm…was there more? The dancers are: Jacquelyn Elder, Douglas Gillespie, Kraus, Luke Murphy and T.J. Spaur. The other collaborators are: Costume Designer - Sarah Cubbage; Lighting Designer - Brian Jones; and Set Designer - Kurt Perschke.
