“Systematic Process: The Audition,” choreographed by Kenneth Balint, is one of the world-premiere pieces featured in “Syntheses,” a concert presented by Fresno State’s Contemporary Dance Ensemble. The concert presents six repertory dance works on tales of injustice, identity, personal relationships, absurdity, competition and beauty.

The show opens tonight at Fresno State’s John Wright Theatre and continues through Feb. 22.

Other premieres are “Gezi” by guest choreographer Seda Arbay, “Blithely Stomping Through the Minefield of Contemporary Sensitivities” by Balint, “Intelligence is Just Another Name for Depression” by student choreographer Katherine Dorn and “Underneath the Surface” by guest choreographer and Fresno State Alumni Rogelio Lopez. Rounding out the program will be Balint’s contemporary duet “Friction Brings Fatigue,” which premiered at Fresno State in 2005.

I saw the “Synthesis” production on the last night, February 22 and it was awesome! The 6 dances depicted journies through life’s emotions, which allowed one to see that challenges will appear; yet, there is always someone close by to lift you up. And because of this experience, you will be there for someone else without having to know who that person is. ~A
