Don't look for Danceworks Performance Company this weekend in the ensemble's usual performance space. DPC opened a weekend of performances Thursday evening in the Next Act Theatre space on S. Water St.
The program, a multimedia feast entitled "Breathe," featured members of the company and a hefty roster of guest artists.
"Breathe," which ranged from solo and small ensemble pieces to a stage-filling finale, featured the work of DPC members Alberto Cambra, Kim Johnson, artistic director Dani Kuepper, Gina Laurenzi, Liz Tesch, Christal Wagner, Jöelle Worm, Andrew Zanoni and Liz Zastrow. They were joined by guest dancers Joe Fransee, Elizabeth Johnson, Kym McDaniel, Joseph Pikalek, Natasha Posey, Madeleine Schoch and Dan Schuchart.
