September 30, 2017 (San Diego) -- Visionary Dance Theatre, a La Mesa-based dance troupe, presents “Circular Visions” at the City Heights Performance Annex (3795 Fairmount Ave, San Diego) on October 6th-7th at 8 p.m.

This dance concert kicks off Visionary’s 8th season, titled Restoration 8.  “Join us for the entire season as we re-stage, re-create, and re-image some of our best works from the past seasons,” the invitation states. 

Restoration 8, season 2017-2018, will mark Visionary Dance Theatre's eight years of bringing diverse and new outlooks to dance in San Diego. Visionary Dance Theatre will present three concerts this season in their Restoration 8 series -- a total of eight past works and a few new ones.

Artistic Director Spencer John Powell presents a new work in progress titled “Circular Visions” in collaboration with Assistant Artistic Director Trixi Agiao.  Inspired by Powell’s genealogy work discovered through the findings of his own DNA testing, this work explores how we are all interconnected as humans in this world.  Powell additionally restages his 1995 work titled “The Wall”, a relevant piece in today’s political climate about building border walls.

Internationally-acclaimed choreographer and Professor of Dance at University of South Florida Jeanne Travers presents her 2011 work “Tunisian Nights”, a fast-paced dance set to the music of Dizzy Gillespie, as well has her 1989 work “Spiral Dance”.  Also, Kiona Daelyn (former VDT Master Teacher and Ballet Mistress) will set a new work on the VDT dancers.

VDT will be teaming up with the VDT Pre-Professional dancers after training them the entire summer of 2017. The VDT Pre-Professional program is a program for teen and adults who have aspirations to go on to the professional concert stage.

Join Visionary for an evening of dance honoring some of their best works from the past as well as new, thoughtful works for the present day.
