Hello my friends,

My show Spacetime Suite is coming up at the end of September!

Join me, Dance Metro DC's 2016 Presentation Grant awardee, for this fascinating concert featuring a cast chalk-full of the DMV's most innovative dance-makers.

Sopoci Drake uses astrophysical phenomena as inspiration for this human experiment in movement.  Black holes become the backdrop for human decision-making, the orbits of celestial bodies mirror intimate relationships, and the collision of galaxies give us a reflection of the movements of humans across cities and countries.  Set choreography and improvisational scores are used to study the effects of flow on both the mover and the observer. Watch art and physics collide in this critically acclaimed work described as "seductive, lovely, inhuman" (ExpressMilwaukee.com) with Sopoci Drake's signature "decisive and controlled vocabulary" (MilwaukeeMag.com).
