Arts writer Michael Upchurch reports:
Mark Morris, the Seattle-born, New York-based choreographer whose company appears at the Paramount this weekend, was a startling new force in dance in his younger days. So it seems worth mentioning that if you’re looking something edgy and fresh that’s bubbling up from the Seattle dance underground, you can’t do better than “Super Eagle” at Velocity Dance Center, co-created by Cornish alum Kate Wallich and PNB’s Andrew Bartee.
Tight moves, an electric rapport between the dancers and a dark energy overall make for a mesmerizing evening. Wallich and Bartee’s fellow dancers, the brooding Matt Drews and mercurial Lavinia Vago, are every bit their equal. Limited walk-up tickets are available for 8 p.m. shows Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 15-16, and 10 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15 (206-325-8773 or www.velocitydancecenter.org ).
