Baltimore Dance Project is dedicated to presenting the creative work of Carol Hess and Doug Hamby, two of the most exciting choreographers in Maryland, and is known for its edgy collaborations with composers, directors, sound artists, and video artists, and the incorporation of visual media and technology with riveting dance performance.

The program will feature:

-- Fog, a women’s duet by Doug Hamby, with live camera feeds and a sound score by Steve Bradley, “performed...with a heated sultriness rarely seen in the ethos of modern dance” (The Washington Post).
-- Somewhere in the Middle, a delicious new quartet by Carol Hess (premiere).
-- A new video/dance shot in the ruins of a Baltimore factory, by Doug Hamby, Carol Hess and Ferdinand Maisel (premiere).
-- Echoes by Hamby, a display of forceful physicality by six dancers to a score by Timothy Nohe.
-- Lindsay Phebus’ intriguing performance in Habitrail by Carol Hess, to an original electronic score by August Schwartz.
-- Tai Ma’s intimate expression of coming to terms with loss, in Letting Go by Doug Hamby.
-- Jenifer Dobbins in Persona, by Carol Hess, a 2008 Maryland Choreographers’ Showcase selection
-- Sandra Lacy in the highly expressive Dissolve by Jeanine Durning.
