Pensive Spring 

When: Sun., May 1, 2 p.m. 2011
Price: $15-$25
Poet Emily Dickinson revealed few details of her life, and the mysteries she left behind inspire curiosity and creativity nearly 125 years after her death. Among the enchanted is Berkeley choreographer Kathryn Roszak, whose dance-drama Pensive Spring: A Portrait of Emily Dickinson poignantly embodies the cryptic, compelling emotions Dickinson expressed in her poetry. On Sunday, May 1, Roszak joins her company, Danse Lumiere, to perform the piece, which also features soprano Kristin Clayton in a song-cycle of Dickinson's poems by composer Gordon Getty, dancer Hally Bellah-Guther, and pianist Kristin Pankonin. The Berkeley City Club (2315 Durant Ave., Berkeley) provides a suitably atmospheric space for Dickinson's elusive spirit and marvelous artistry. After the performance, join the artists at a reception. 2 p.m., $15-$25. 510-848-7800 or BerkeleyCityClub.com
