Bellingham Repertory Dance Presents: Missed Connections

This fall, Bellingham Repertory Dance (BRD) presents Missed Connections, an evening of contemporary dance. Missed Connections is about the many human connections that are made, delayed, yearned for, or let go. This high-energy performance features playful expression and an eclectic mix of relationships explored through movement. BRD is thrilled to return to the Firehouse Arts and Events Center for this unique collection of new and previously loved works on November 11-12 and November 17-19. 

In Anna Bauer’s piece “Breakfast,” the dancers dive deep into a fleeting moment of connection and familiarity. Shannon Mockli’s sweeping “What Once Was Held” (previously performed by BRD in 2018) is an audience favorite about the tenuous nature of memories. “Tricity,” by Robert Kitsos, delves into the strange phenomenon of electricity and the energetic power of the color yellow. Joshua Manculich describes his visually stunning work, “Manners,” as a “reflection of the ways in which we house etiquette.” 

In Morgan Walker’s “Inside Outsider,” the athletic choreography depicts the anxiety that grows out of isolation. “Spare Me,” choreographed by Morgan Sandlin, is a striking and joyful romp through the bowling alleys of our collective childhoods. Missed Connections will also feature the first iteration of a new process-driven work choreographed by BRD member Cecelia Hanford.

Dates: November 11-12 and 17-19 

Location: Firehouse Arts and Events Center (1314 Harris Ave.)

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
