Quantum physics meets social ties as choreographer Rebecca Kelly explores complicated relationships between particles and persons.

A frequent theme in Rebecca Kelly’s ballets is relationships.  This season includes Entanglements (2018), described as “science in motion” last year,  and A Fine Line of True Togetherness (2004), a sleek and stylized movement piece. How this piece came into being stems from its title.  What is a fine line? What is together?  What is true?

Kelly reflected on the intimate workings of a company.  Togetherness would be thought to hold just as true for a dance company, a tech company, or a team of athletes.  But there may be a fine line what constitutes cohesion and smooth operations.  Rebecca always looks at human nature first, even as she considers the inner workings of a clock, or a dance for five in 5/4’s, or how to use the energy of dissonance to create harmony.
