Ecdysis, a Dance Performance

Ecdysis means to molt, or shed one's skin. Written by Homa Dashtiki and set to music by composer and musician Solitari, this beguiling dance piece celebrates womanhood as it relays one individual's transition from jejune youth to weathered maturity.  The collaborative program consists of seven solo segments, executed by seven dancers, that shift in mood and intensity, from Aling Zhang's blithe opening to Tanya Beatty's final forceful denouement, which embraces everything that's gone before. Dancer Lennon Hobson's movement speaks to aspiration and Kami Rocket's to defiant self-assertion. Most memorable is Dale Shieh, in a vivid portrayal of erotic yearning and meteoric passion.

IDA Hollywood, 6755 Hollywood Blvd. 2nd Floor, Fri., 9:30 p.m.; Sat., 8:30 p.m.
