“Alone Together” — new and retrospective contemporary dance solos — will be showcased tonight, May 17, at Creative Avenue’s Performance Space, 835 N, 26th St.

Laura Bradley of the Beyond Boundaries Dance Collective and Push/Don’t Pull Dance Theatre will direct as well as perform in the show along with Colorado Mesa University faculty members Tracey Bonner and Justin Keats. CMU graduating seniors Sarah Sheehan, Katie Schmidt and Rachel Krueger will also perform.

Bonner, who joined CMU’s dance program last fall, has a career in theatre and dance. She’s additionally toured with a professional touring company of “West Side Story.”

Keats graduated from the University of California-Irvine with a bachelor of fine arts degree in dance and recently spent a year dancing aboard Norwegian Cruise Lines. He is currently a CMU artist-in-residence.

“I asked friends whose work I loved,” to participate, said Bradley, who wanted to plan a concert to showcase some of her own work. “It shaped up to be all solos, and I liked the theme.”

There will be 10 dances, with seven dancers — all of whom add choreography to the evening’s performance.

The Creative Avenues small theatre will offer an “intimate venue for presenting solo work that ranges from entertaining musical theatre to introspective modern to quirky and fun contemporary,” Bradley said.

“I’ve seen everybody’s work,” Bradley said. “There’s a lot of variety. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
