For the dance artist, the studio is a sanctuary. It is a place of wonder, exploration, and acceptance. Here, the precious energy of dancers fulfills movement concepts that reflect a choreographer’s perceptions of what it means to be human. October 22-24, Chapman Dance presents Sanctuary, an evening of dance featuring new works along with repertory favorites such as “Exquisite Corpse” (2013), “Laughing Heart” (2016), and “Stop Copying Me” (2018). “Don’t Touch My Planet” (2020), which premiered at Choreographers X 6 at ERJCC, leads a trio of new dances. Sprinkled with short dance films produced in 2021, Sanctuary offers the Yin and Yang of Chapman’s love for explosive and contemplative movement. This project is funded in part by the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance and the University of Houston.
