"San Francisco based choreographer and dancer Yannis Adoniou followed. His singular approach to technique class employed vocalization, improvisation, visualization, touch and the natural world combined with rigorous classical technique. Working integrally with class accompanists, he pushed dancers to discover more sensate dancing through the interpretation of vibrations and clear identification of different movement consistencies. Yannis also created new choreographic work while in residence. He choreographed a new work "Naivete in Minor," for the Spring PDC concert that allows the performers to explore an inner journey of sensation while sharing the personal and individually felt physicalization of the work. With a stunning stage design infused with interactive digital technology, the piece features many vignettes of human experience that range from the vast and chaotic to the subtlest moments of connection between us."
