Looking for an evenings entertainment that pushes you out of your comfort zone? Get to Royal T on Nov. 7 for Donna Sternberg & Dancers newest show “Dis-Illusions.” In collaboration with visual artist Gwen Samuels and musician Ken Christianson this will be the first in a series of performances exploring the concept of perception and memory.”Dis- Illusions” is based on scientific evidence that what and how we construct our sense of reality may differ radically from one another. Gwen Samuels creates a magical visual environment with an installation of pieces that march along walls, hang suspended on plexiglass cubes and form unusual freestanding groupings. The dancers weave within and amongst the art, both interacting with and using it to challenge our notions of perception. Ken Christianson composes an aural landscape that confounds and delights the listener. Working within the architectural constructs of Royal T, a charming cafe/shop/art space, dance, visual art and music combine to examine how our perceptions are colored by our expectations, beliefs and memories. Dis-Illusions is a continuation of Donna Sternberg & Dancers science series, which seeks to build a bridge between dance and science through the artistic interpretation of scientific principles.
