Body Weather Laboratory and the Electric Lodge are pleased to announce the return of Flower of the Season; a two weekend dance series featuring innovative performances of new solo work and improvisation.

In it's third incarnation, the Flower of the Season series offers five solo performances from a group of dancers who have been training closely together at Body Weather Laboratory. The dancers come from a variety of backgrounds yet nevertheless seek to implement a common vocabulary. In the second weekend, the series will return to it's source with new collaborative works from it's acclaimed creators, Roxanne Steinberg and Oguri with internationally recognized musicians; Myra Melford and Alex Cline.

Dance and performance are transitory arts. They exist in the present. Just as the splendor of a flower is fleeting, so is each remarkable moment of a dance performance - always passing into the next. A flower seeks the light, growing and developing accordingly. It finds just the right time and place to blossom.

When Oguri and Steinberg began this presenting forum in 1999, it was in an effort to foster collaborations between visual artists, musicians, writers and dancers. Together, with the work of percussionist Adam Rudolph, sculptor Stephan Glassman, artist Hirokazu Kosaka, musicians Wadada Leo Smith, G.E. Stinson and Nels Cline and dancers Roxanne Steinberg, Melinda Ring, Mia Doi Todd and Jamie Burris, Oguri has continually explored boundaries between audience and stage, creating fresh contexts for the presentation of art and performance.
