Wash Over You Part I and II
Wash Over You finds travelers moved along an unpredictable, serene yet powerful river. There are many stopping places but can they get ‘off the boat?” Along the way, you’ll be on a raft, on dry land and on the wrong side of the fence. The only thing to do is pack your bag, stuff your friend into a trunk and let this new work Wash Over You.
“Jane Franklin’s choreography has a delightfully simple, yet imaginative root. At its best the audience can feel the discoveries the performers are making on stage. And with each of their discoveries, each member of the audience makes their own.” Robert Michael Oliver, DCMetroTheatreArts

200x200 MARAd40Forty+
A mixed repertory performance by Forty+ features new works by Andie Ligon de Vaulx, Emily Crews, and recent works by Jane Franklin. “Just Wear a Scarf” comments on the appropriateness of suitable attire for the well-dressed woman. “Dance Squared” is just that, an energizing twist on the traditional square dance form. “Thanks and Please Pass the Potatoes” brings up the politeness, and distance, of a holiday dinner. The music is by Truman Harris of Eclipse Chamber Orchestra, an Alexandria based music ensemble.  Forty+ performers are a diverse group of women, with careers spanning the government, public and private sectors, some who have retired, a varying range of physical facility, but all with a great dedication to the performing arts. Enjoy the expressiveness of movement and the collaborative creative process through these performances by older dancers.
