Artistic Director Margi Cole steps back from choreography to mentor her company members in this evening of short works, which include a collaborative piece by Maggie Koller on the topic of money with live music by AM Brother and a soul-searching self-directed solo by Molly Grimm-Leasure on the subject of self-forgiveness. “Taking Hold, ” a piece by Cole that premiered last winter, is also on the program. It will be interesting to see what direction these women, who have danced together under single leadership, fly once they’re pushed from the nest; for example Donnette Cannonie’s hip-hop-infused work, a departure from the TDC’s style. Cole remarked on the pleasures of watching her company engage in collective (erm, COLEctive) critique, conquering goals they set up for one another. She’s so pleased with the project she’s already booked Links Hall to do it again next year. (Sharon Hoyer)
