Milwaukee, WI  (November 2, 2021)… A Year of Dancing Dangerously unleashes a boisterous, gutsy dance about our longing for presence, touch and connection. Dancers jolt expectations, with inexplicable stories, their actions shift with whiplash energy from full-bodied movement to stillness, from chaos to unguarded intimacy. In the midst of dancing, a parking lot appears, cars park, and mayhem follows. Trios and duets knot and unravel, phrases repeat to keep uncertainty at bay. A folkdance ensues and escalates as a trial for endurance, and nothing will ever be the same.

In a search for place and presence, A Year of Dancing Dangerously creates a landscape of wild abandon within charged moments of exquisite poignancy.

A Year of Dancing Dangerously returns Wild Space Dance Company to the theater of its 1987 debut performance, to share a brave new dance with a brave new audience.

Performers include Katelyn Altmann, Brea Graber, Alisha Jihn, Lindsey Ruenger, Nicole Spence, Yeng Vang-Strath, UWM intern, Jasmine Uras and Deb LoewenA Year of Dancing Dangerously performances are at 7:30 p.m., December 2-4 in UWM’s Mitchell Hall Studio 254.
