Nelson’s “RingRoundRozi,” from last year, begins as a playful romp. Dancers dash and skitter madly across the stage, bounding and leapfrogging, balancing on their hands and catching themselves effortlessly. Linda Bouchard’s commissioned sound collage, featuring children’s voices and percussion, jostles with Nelson’s intermingling traffic patterns for quick-shifting groups of dancers. With precision the dancers cut diagonals and carve curves from thin air.
