- Jane Franklin Dance – Polar
JFD’s “Going Polar” (premiering April 2020) is a devised movement-theatre work about an old concept, that “opposites attract.” In this excerpt, “Polar,” bodies vie for the upper hand. “Opposites attract” remains part of the belief system that a little tension is a good thing. In the current climate of easy division, it is more common that people are attracted to those who hold the same views and values as themselves. Music is by Mark Sylvester, a skilled guitarist and composer.
- “Rosie”, a duet choreographed by Rachel Luebbert, is performed by dancers adorned in pink wigs and blazers that unpack the complex implications of the color pink across different stages of life.
- Jane Franklin Dance – EyeSoar (excerpts) The connotation of “eyesore”, an unpleasant sight in a public place, spins in EyeSoar as audio, video and movement highlight the wonderful people and organizations in an industrial neighborhood. Space is getting tighter and longtime occupants nestle with change. Features music by Inner Ear Studio founder, Don Zientara
Join us for three unique evenings with DMV area artists.
