Christopher Watson Dance Company presents the premiere of DIVE, a dance work exploring resilience of the human spirit in the face of adversity, Saturday and Sunday, May 5 and 6 at the JSB TEK BOX Theater in the Cowles Center for Dance, 528 Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis. Performances are Saturday at 7:30 PM and Sunday at 2:00 PM.

Advance tickets are on sale at: brownpapertickets.com Search for “DIVE presented by Christopher Watson Dance Company.”

The catalyst for the creation of DIVE was the passing of Michael Eastman, Christopher Watson’s husband of 40 years. The abstract work is a response to the process of reckoning with the cycle of life and death.

Other dance works on the program are by company choreographers Becky Heist, Ryan Parent, Sarah LaRose-Holland and guest artist Daniel McCusker. The program will include screenings of two dance films: Catch and Release, by Christopher Watson and Close Reveal: An Homage to Hilary Harris by Becky Heist.

The Christopher Watson Dance Company is a diverse, multi-generational company with members who are in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s. This is the companys 27th season of performances.
