In this provocative new production, UPside Dance Company unravels the beauty and destruction of ‘change’ in a dedication to the metamorphosis throughout the stages of our lives.  You will see UPside as never before as the dancers ignite the Grange at Healdsburg SHED with contemporary choreography. ‘Chrysalis’  unfurls into an exciting and unexpected journey of redefinition set to the masterful music of Israeli Composer, Ran Bagno… both beautiful, mysterious, and heart pumping.

UPside’s debut of  ‘Chrysalis’ offers a special evening of dance with: performers who defy gravity and convention, a duet examining the fragile balance of relationships, an ensemble of dancers who reinvent the term ‘Beauty’, a section of silk fabrics that evoke a larger-than-life cocoon, and inventive multi-media choreography unveiling a magnified look at ‘metamorphosis’.

A local studio artist, Sandra Novia, will also be integral in creating this unique environment with an imaginative hanging tree orb. UPside also will be introducing a new collaboration with Choreographer Amanda Kreglow in a piece called ‘Flocking’.

Join UPside for an eye-opening evening of underground other-worldly dance experience that will embrace the beauty and the hardship of transformation...
