Fall 2013 : New Adventureres/ ArtPwr! UC San Diego
In our first collaboration, Neave Trio and BBD tackle the challenging score of Dmitri Shostakovich's Piano Trio No. 2. The rhythmic score inspires staccato under rhythms with floating limbs reaching toward a destination only to tumble back one over another to the dark beginnings. Future hopes to present a full evening of the dramatic composition.

Blythe Barton Dance has successfully paired many times with Zaquia Mahler Salinas. Zaquia's choreography blends fascinating story telling with technical modern dance and syncopated rhythms to intrigue audiences. "Perception and Perseverance" was named the WINNER: OUTSTANDING DANCE PRODUCTION of the 2014 San Diego International Fringe Festival and "Muliebrity: Womanhood" was presented at the 2015 Live Arts Fest by San Diego Dance Theater to a sold-out, packed audience.
