There's a good reason why CORE Performance Company, with 32 seasons to its credit, is one of the city's longest-running contemporary dance troupes — each of the company's members has a passion for innovative movement. The group's latest evening-length pro-gram, SHIFT, is built on that passion. SHIFT consists of three world premieres by three choreographers. Leslie Scates, a local practitioner of improvisational dance, contributes herd, a piece that explores the dynamics of existing as an individual within a group context. The quartet of four women performs to an original score by Andy Russ. By contrast, Lori Teague's I felt my life with both hands focuses on the individual and constant preoccupation with the unknown. Finally, during Schroeder's meditative STILL, a quintet dances to the music of Christian Meyer.
