Zoe Dance’s original choreography opens eyes to accessible modern dance and gives dynamic visual form to social issues. Created in collaboration with Irish-American dance company Expandance, “Left” consists of three diverse contemporary works. The show opens with the titular, Chile-inspired “Left,” named one of the Patriot Ledger’s top dance shows of 2011 for its “passionate response to the repression caused by dictatorships.” “Rock Om” alternates peaceful yogic movements with frenetic rock ‘n’ roll–inspired choreography, symbolizing the struggle between chaos and order. The show finishes with “Cnoic Chlaonta,” co-created by Irish dancer Ailish Claffey to evoke the rugged beauty and political challenges of her home island. The action spills across Club Oberon’s cabaret-style stage area before a dramatic red curtain, which hides the choreographers pulling the dancers’ strings.
