Printz’ choreographic signature, a kind of lusty athleticism, naturally lends itself to the material.

Soul+Mates, Printz Dance Project’s evening-length dance performance and art event, engages audience members from the moment they enter the theater building. The experience includes a photographic exhibit, a short film, selections of newly commissioned electronic music, and a dance performance utilizing a set of sliding panels, and a spinning, moveable couch. This project examines the concept of soul mates, and the widespread assumptions and clichés that surround our human desire for love and relationships. An important element of the work is community outreach - the white couch is taken out in public and people are invited to be interviewed and photographed on the couch, thus creating a conduit for conversation between artists and public, and an opportunity for the community to be threaded into the actual work.



Printz and Jorge Vazquez, who open the show face-to-face in the crowd, anchor the evening in their duets. The two are almost mirror images, compact and muscular, blonde and brown, and move with maturity and sincerity that is deeply rooted into the ground and each other, powerfully signaling a quiet union within a world driven by the noise and commerce of desire...Printz Dance Project welcomes lovers, dreamers, and voyeurs of the lucky few to Soul+Mates.
