In Some Language
Is the first work created by the new company for the concert. In Some Language consists of two duets and a reprise. The dance worked with movement and text focusing on the subject of communication. This is the full seventeen minute work.

Together Alone
The opening duet of In Some Language focuses on how a couple being together can be just as isolating to the psyche as being alone.

Ignorance of Burden
The second duet of In Some Language focuses on co-dependency and carrying the weight of a partner without even being aware of the burden.

The finale of In Some Language ties the two duets together and has the four dancers collectively putting a period at the end of the sentence.
