Last year, A Room to Create (better known as ARC) unveiled a new dance performance series dubbed Gold Series No. 1, featuring original works considering the glory and showmanship of the precious metal. The series returns with Gold Series No. 2, with some of the same choreographers, and with the conviction that there is more to say about the weight of gold and humanity’s golden hour.
The six new works sport suggestive titles about gold and its effects: mine by Madison Clark; Golden Nuggets: Harbor Noetic Gestures and Soft Rise from Sarah Leddy, Carol McDowell, Daniel Miramontes, and alexx shilling; Glacial erratics (for those who harbor) by Tyler Rai; CONFLUENCE from Heyward Bracey, Rosemary Candelario and Nguyên Nguyên; plus X01RA7R from Richard Rivera.
ARC, 1158 East Colorado Blvd., Pasadena; Fri.-Sat., Nov. 15-16, 8:30 p.m.; $20, $15 students/seniors. goldseries2.brownpapertickets.com.
