Forty Steps Dance inspired and delighted an audience of 75 plus with “Creatures in the Lilac Garden” on June 7th. Seven dancers brought animal magnetism to the fragrant Lilac Garden, performing sections of a new work, “Creatures”, that is “all the buzz.” The performance was funded by the Swampscott Cultural Council, and amazed young and old as the “creatures” ventured beyond the stage and into the audience bringing the interactive performance to life. Sallee Slagle, choreographer, has brilliantly portrayed the movements of creatures through the movements of the human body.
Forty Steps Dance will be performing “Creatures” in full on the evenings of July 18, 19 and 20, 2014 at Windhover Summer Dance Institute in Rockport, Mass.

Photos from Fragile as performed in 2002, 2011, 2013. This original work was dedicated to all the victims and heroes of the tragedy on September 11, 2001. In 2011, the tenth anniversary of 9/11, it was revised to include a new opening section. All were touched by the events of that day and we recognize that our lives are all still affected in many ways. – photos: Leslie Jardine, Joe Puleo
