April 27, 2019: SOULSKIN Dance at 10th Annual MFDP/SF Dancing in the Park 

Invited to perform at Mark Foehringer Dance Project/SF 10th annual production of Dancing in the Park during Bay Area Dance Week. Emanuel Colombo and Andrea McGinnis performed an excerpt of their duet "Fear" from "Parallel Dialogues".

April 14, 2019: Duet Series with Mariam Barbosa Dance at the Dairy Center for the Arts in Boulder, CO 

Parallel Dialogues is about connection with others and ultimately with humanity and our world. Through relationships we build empathy, trust and compassion. Those traits are found only through close human contact. In a time where that contact is being more and more channeled into technology, it is no wonder our society is developing into a more polarized one. Time is one of the most significant components of relationship. As our mortality becomes a not so distant reality the quest to find fulfillment and comfort can turn into a kind of desperation.

September 7-9, 2018: "HERO" 

With spoken word by LA-based writer, performer and movement artist Lilly Bright and choreography by Artistic Director Adrianna Thompson and collaborator/guest artist   Sebastien Thill (Paris Opera Ballet), HERO features a young woman who unexpectedly receives a message from faraway; a doorway mysteriously reveals itself. An odyssey of the individual merging with the universal (and vice versa) is the parallel realm that envelops her, testing her fortitude through longing and love, struggle and salvation, loss and remembrance. At once mystical and mundane, HERO explores the multitude of roles the hero plays in our everyday, extra-ordinary lives.
