NEBULA DANCE LAB presents…


Floodlit & Fallen

a new original work and reprise of repertory 'Sand Into Glass'


"Floodlit & Fallen" is the world premiere of a new original work by Brooklyn Hughes and in collaboration with the professional company of dancers, costume design- Anaya Cullen, lighting design- Spencer Michaels, technical direction- Brad Spaulding, and music composition- William Pasley, PLUS featuring original narrative by Kathryn Stephens. 

The purpose of this work is to explore historical and current struggles of humanity through the eyes of trees; inspired by the history and mythology surrounding Trees. This piece explores the rich storyline between 'trees'/ nature alike and human kind, illuminated through the lens of recognizable tales and emotional landscapes. The movement language takes Nebula into a new world, embarking on a dance work sure to complement its already contrasting repertory library. In addition to the powerful choreography depicted through the characters of this story, Nebula collaborates with a variety of artists to bring this realistic fairytale to life, including Anaya Cullen on costume design; Spencer Michaels, lighting design, Kathryn Stephen with original writing; as well as visual and graphic artists, sound composer and more. This piece is sure to take you on a transformative journey.

Floodlit & Fallen also reprises the repertory work Sand Into Glass, choreographed by Devyn Duex. This piece is a culmination of work over several years, premiered as a six-minute concept in 2008, reworked and shown in 2009, and then revisited again in 2012, delving deeper into the concept and developed into a six-section story line. The piece explores the emotional and physical landscape of the journey the self takes when confronted with challenging experiences. The work strives to awaken one’s inner awareness of cyclical behavior and provide a catalyst to change and personal growth. If you saw it last season, it will have some new moments explored, and certain characters danced by company members for the first time, bringing a new life to the overall work.


Nebula Dance Lab was founded by president and artstic director Devyn Duex in 2010 to provide artists in modern

dance the opportunity to experiment, push boundaries, and create new language in dance through physical exploration.

Nebula Dance Lab has presented their vibrant work to the Santa Barbara community through venues such as the NECTAR artist forum, SB-ADaPT Fest, Mix Match Festival (LA), performances with local non-profit organizations, and self-produced events. This year the company performed in LA, San Diego, and locally and has been invited to Chile next year to participate in volunteer service and perform. This is an exciting opportunity for Nebula to share new work with a new community.

NEBULA DANCE LAB presents…


Re:Vision

dance as perception, memory, sensation


"Re:Vision" will feature the choreography of Devyn Duex and Emily Tatomer, in three distinct

works united by their use of dance as a medium of conveying perception, memory, and sensation.


Set to the soulful music of Nina Simone, "Snapshots" a lush and lyrical new work by Emily Tatomer, is a meditation on sense-memories, some somber and some light-heated. "Sand Into Glass", a bold and intense new work choreographed by Devyn Duex and accompanied by video art by Erin Martinez, explores the emotional and physical landscape of a journey from self-destructive behavior to healing then to moving forward. Re:Vision will also feature a reprise of “Take the Bull by the Horns”, the dynamic, intellectual work by Emily Tatomer first presented in our debut 2011-2012 season.


Nebula Dance Lab was founded by president and artstic director Devyn Duex in 2010 to provide artists in modern

dance the opportunity to experiment, push boundaries, and create new language in dance through physical exploration.

Our artists-in-residence have shared their vibrant work at venues such as the NECTAR artist forum, SB-ADaPT

Featuring World Premiere new works by  our resident choreographers Emily Wheeler and Erin Martinez. Under the direction of Devyn Duex.


Take the Bull by the Horns, choreographed by Emily Wheeler is an exploration of the psychological journey towards personal acceptance. Through investigating our negative habits and thought patterns, and really looking at our perceptions and expectations of ourselves, we may be able to let go of tired ideals and see ourselves plainly for who we really are. One hopes that by facing the truth of self head on, we may find acceptance of who and what we are in the present moment.


The Singing Bones, choreographed by Erin Martinez is a new adaptation of "The Twa Sisters", a traditional murder ballad that recounts the tale of a girl drowned by her sister. It is first known to have appeared on a broadside in 1656 as "The Miller and the King's Daughter." The Singing Bones is a blend of drastically fast and articulate choreography, dark stylistic video projection, a haunting electro-folk-acoustic score, and live shadow theater. This contemporary folklore is wonderfully bone chilling and emotionally hard-hitting.


This project is funded in part by the COMMUNITY ARTS GRANT PROGRAM using funds provided by the City of Santa Barbara in partnership with the Santa Barbara County Arts Commission.
