Caroline Calouche & Co. will present Spring Forward on May 4 & 5 at the Grace Street Theater.

Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company), “The Tie That Binds”, “Arthropod” and oo-ee-ah-uh.

“Free to Live” features athletic and expressive contemporary dance melded with aerial work on the double sling, aerial cube, bungee and—their invention—the swinging bench. Caroline Calouche and the dancers will explore how different people define the idea of freedom. “We premiered this work in March 2012 and realized that we needed more time to truly dive into this v mast topic,” says Calouche, artistic and executive director. “The dancers and I are very excited to have this opportunity to present version two of the work.”
