Should dancer-choreographer Deborah Brockus contemplate a career switch, she could find work as a costume designer: The myriad wardrobe changes her nine-woman Brockus Project Dance Company underwent on Saturday at Cal State Long Beach's Knoebel Theater were dizzying. Too bad the program--three premieres--was not as absorbing, or as varied, as the apparel. "Edge of the Sands," a 35-minute foray into Middle Eastern exoticism, was a kind of "English Patient" meets Cirque du Soleil.

Deborah Brockus' Spectrum series is where Southland dancers and choreographers hone their craft, strut their stuff or try something risky that might not otherwise fit into their creative profiles. As usual, Spectrum #21 at the Ivar Theatre on Sunday proved uneven but offered more exciting discoveries than outright disasters, with 17 short pieces on the bill, 10 of them premieres.

There may be safety in numbers, but being secure in modern-jazz dance does not always make for the edgiest, most enlightened performance. Brockus Project Dance Company, founded and directed by the indefatigable Deborah Brockus, presented such a program on Saturday at Cal State Long Beach's Knoebel Theater.

It's a toss-up as to who works harder: dancer-choreographer-producer Deborah Brockus or the dozens of dancers who perform in her award-winning "Spectrum Dance in L.A." series. In any case, it's the dance community that benefits, as evidenced Saturday night at the Ivar Theatre when Spectrum #15 played to a packed house. And while not all 17 choreographers triumphed, hits happily outweighed misses.
