Belly is a 60-minute dance in 2 parts, collaboratively choreographed by Artistic Director Elizabeth Dishman and the performers: Larissa Asebedo, Tony Gonzales, Mary Lyn Graves, Nadia Halim, Owen Prum, and Julie Seal.

Part 1 of the dance partners with Bach’s Solo Violin Sonata No. 2 in A minor, performed live by Adrian Ong. With present, embodied attentiveness, the artists frame the sonata's turbulent, poignant lines and fleeting resolutions as a relationally-charged contemporary dialogue between distinct voices.

Part 2 partners with a new sound score by cellist-composer Okorie Johnson, developed in response to Part 1’s choreography which was offered to him in silence with no knowledge of its first musical partner. His artistic voice cultivates a new sonic space in which to digest the existing dance.

Belly is named for the intimate space that draws together different individual elements for the body’s nourishment and pleasure. By digesting and making space for diverse elements, the whole body made up of many parts becomes cohesive and energized to move fluidly through a complicated world.

About the company:

Dishman + Co. Choreography is a professional collaborative dance company working to foster dialogue between different voices. Our connective practices of “embodied listening” build intimate, vigorous dance conversations that generate and exude from the stage a vibrant communal presence among the company’s distinct collaborators. Performances, audience conversations, and movement workshops with diverse communities seek to share embodied listening as a powerful connector in a fractured culture.
