Knoebel Dance Theater located at the California State University, Long Beach campus. The dates of the premieres were October 14, 2010, April 28, 2011, and October 13, 2011. The dances were 9 minutes, 18 minutes, and 6 minutes in length, respectively.
Transitioning Through Cyclic Existence explored the Buddhist faith's journey of the soul postmortem through samsara. Heaven reflected a congruent vision of Heaven based on Christian writings and theologies to create a communal, uplifting spiritual environment. Chinvat Bridge examined the scriptures of the Zoroastrian religion as it depicts the earliest vision of Hell, and how this recreation can create a visceral response in audience members.
