Baltimore Dance Project returns with a mix of heart-warming, mind-bending, vigorous, inventive, creepy, and entertaining dance. The company features the choreography of artistic directors Doug Hamby and Carol Hess, "two of the most exciting choreographers in Maryland," performances by award-winning dancers Sandra Lacy and Adrienne Clancy, and a crew of eight outstanding dancers. The production features lighting by Enoch Chan.

Featured on the program:
-- Stop and Go* by Doug Hamby, in which a young dancer revs his engines for the first time.
-- Gavotte* by Doug Hamby, a playful duet in a theme and variations structure to music by Rameau.
-- Heartstrings by Doug Hamby, a movement meditation on the music of Ferdinand Maisel with luscious dancing amid shards and flecks of light.
-- Liquid Measure** by Carol Hess, a duet inspired by ancient forms of measurement using the body as a reference.
-- Private Property, an edgy dance by Carol Hess about personal space and voyeurism, featuring dancer Michelle Brandenburg and camera artist/filmmaker Nick Prevas interacting with live, real-time large scale video.
-- Transparencies/Other Lives by Carol Hess, in which six dancers become avatars and explore a virtual world, dancing with animated characters and visual projections.
-- When I Needed You Most, Where Were You? choreographed and performed by Adrienne Clancy and Sandra Lacy (a Maryland 2010 Choreographers Showcase selection).
-- Two by Eartha, a virtuosic yet whimsical solo by Iréne Hultman, performed by Sandra Lacy.
