City Beat Onstage

Friday, October 15, 2021


Whether you missed this physically mesmerizing company of 11 lithe young women in Binocular in January at the Aronoff Center or just want to exhale winter and the record breaking snows of February, take yourself to The Anderson Center Friday night for Exhale Dance Tribe’s funny, sensual, explosive and sometimes serious Look Closer.

As usual, co-founders and artistic directors Missy Lay Zimmer and Andrew Hubbard have pulled out all the stops. From the January program they’ll repeat “Motion Pictures,” a multi-vignette “trip-hop dance floating on the notes of musical genius Apparat.” Two world premieres fill out the bill: “Soldier Jam” from L.A. choreographer Kristin Denehy and a solo work choreographed and danced by young Columbus phenom Taylor Hansen, winner of Exhale’s Choreographer’s Collex Awards and Invitational Solo Competition.
