The New Mexico Dance Theater Performance Company (NMDT-PC), directed by Susan Baker-Dillingham, will move you this weekend with its newest production, “Be Moved.” Baker-Dillingham’s company of 25 pre-professional dancers perform four of her original works at the Duane W. Smith Auditorium.
The ballet, “Our Beloved Weeping Souls,” opens the program. Based on the family unit, the ballet focuses on six elements: love, father, mother, child, God and the reality of death.
The “Back Brandenburg Concerto” highlights the pure joy of dance and extremely feisty footwork in the first and third movements, while the second movement portrays the moving relationship between a brother leaving home for the first time and the young sister left behind.
After intermission, the dancers will present “The Diamond Dance,” a social commentary.
