choreographers – Brenda Way, KT NelsonInspired by the work of visual artist Andy Goldsworthy and set to a commissioned score performed live by acclaimed avant cellist Zoë Keating, Way and Nelson’s fearless choreography touches on transformation in both art and nature.

TWO IF BY SEA (2013)
(YBCA Premiere) choreography - Kimi Okada
Inspired by clandestine physical languages and codes, this rhythmic, physical duet spiced with tap, delightful partnering, and a wink of humor unveils the power of hidden signals. From the glimmer of an SOS signal to the click of Morse code, from a coaches tug of an ear to the lift of lover's eyebrow, we all have our codes.
TRIANGULATING EUCLID (2013)choreography – Brenda Way, KT Nelson, Kate Weare
Way and Nelson team up with acclaimed New York-based choreographer Kate Weare in this unprecedented collaboration. A smash hit of the 2013 season, this work was inspired by a rare original edition of Euclid’s Elements, perhaps the most influential work in the history of mathematics. This highly physical and emotive piece moves from the formal elegance of geometry to its human implication: from triangles to threesomes, from lines to connections, from the page to the heart.
UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES: A MEDITATION (2008)choreography –Brenda WayPerformed to great acclaim throughout ODC's State Department tour of Asia, Unintended Consequences shines a critical light on the current state of political affairs and our inadvertent complicity in them. Never one to harangue, Way has taken this opportunity to compose a quiet, ironic and insightfully humorous piece set to music by renowned performance artist and musician Laurie Anderson.
