Your body may not need warming up with these unseasonably warm temps, but don’t forget about that pesky soul. Kinetic Studio simultaneously feeds your spirit and launches its 2014 Studio Series with a weekend of contemporary dance from choreographers Don Rieder, Janice Jackson and Liliona Quarmyne (January 18, 19 8pm at DANSpace, 1531 Grafton Street, $5/$10). Jackson and Quarmyne, both recipients of Kinetic Explorations—assistance from the studio to develop new work. Jackson’s work in progress is titled Oppression and features dance artists Jacinte Armstrong, Susanne Chui and Elise Vanderborght. Quarmyne’s solo offering is Tide (excerpt), “a personal journey that explores connections between her home country of Ghana and her current home in Antigonish.” Don Rieder, master teacher and Cirque du Soleil alum shows off physical theatre and the art of clowning with two parts of his Heartbreak Pajamas trilogy.
