Yuri Possokhov’s “Fusion” also acknowledges the collision of East and West, but as pure dance where chest isolations evolve into American jazz. Unfortunately it, too, loses its way — though the leads, who dance with transcendent commitment, never do. (They include Frances Chung, Lauren Strongin, Yuan Yuan Tan, Lorena Feijoo, Jaime Garcia Castill, Luke Ingham, James Sofranko and Hansuke Yamamota.). Nor do they in the company’s reprise of Liam Scarlett’s “Fearful Symmetries,” which, in place of the excited chaos of last year’s premiere, had a tribal air of menace that was both combative and life-affirming. Set to John Adams’ “Fearful Symmetries” — “traveling music,” as the Berkeley composer calls this genre of his work — the dance uses boxing motifs and propulsive, prowling ensemble work to capture a generation on the edge. What Scarlett doesn’t nail are the music’s layers. The dance hews to the melodic line, rather than its architecture as whole. And it is visually less interesting than it could be.
