The human body is capable of amazing things. For proof, look no further than the Vertigo Dance Company and their piece, Reshimo.The performance is inspired by a Kabbalistic idea exploring the understanding of what a human being is, and the fine outline that remains around a being when the lights are gone. It’s heady stuff, these ideas Vertigo will bring to life at the Mary D’Angelo Performing Arts Center; but it’ll be fun, too: The performance incorporates rhythmic physical animation and playfulness, evoking “passion toward everything that is contained within time and space.” OK, we did go back to the heady stuff there for a second.

Vertigo is known for being innovators in Israel’s contemporary dance community and has performed on the TEDGlobal stage. For your own taste of the company’s explorations of society and humanity, join the crowd at Mercyhurst and see what these bodies can do. — Sara Toth
