ODC/Dance is known worldwide for its athleticism, passion and intellectual depth. Among the many awards the company has received are seven Isadora Duncan Dance Awards, two Nureyevs and a Tony nomination. ODC have been hailed as “Best Dance Company” in the San Francisco Bay Guardian’s Best of the Bay 2002, 2005, 2006, 2009, 2011, and 2013 editions. The Victoria program includes Triangulating Euclid. Inspiration for this work came from the discovery of a rare original edition of Euclid’s Elements, perhaps the most influential work in the history of mathematics. Highly physical, insightful and emotive, the work moves from the formal elegance of geometry to its human implication.

Triangulating Euclid is “irresistible…[it] flows, twirls and regroups with utter confidence.”

SF CHRONICLE

Waving Not Drowning, an exploration of the role of fashion and its implication for women, forms the second part of the evening. Wry, witty and ultimately thought-provoking, the dancers move with confidence.

“Genuinely coherent satire…so rare in the dance world.”
