Voted best dance performance in the San Francisco Fringe Festival, inFluxdance enthralls audiences with their integration of dance, theatre, and American Sign Language.
“… A mere sentence becomes more than a dance movement; it becomes an entire choreography.” (indyish.com)
This season, inFluxdance, is presenting 3 original works wrapped up into an evening length piece. This exciting performance draws in compelled audiences to view a variety of beautifully carved visual pieces. The company is pushing the boundaries of interdisciplinary dance speaking on a personal, community, and universal level. “
‘Identity Crisis’, conceived and performed by Alysia Woodruff and Rose Pasquarello Beauchamp, will find the simplicity in relationship while investigating the complexity of roles we try to define as women. We are experimenting with the elements of production and communication. By layering designs, American Sign Language, body language, and text we will show how context can create and change the meaning of dance.
In ‘Authority…Beauty’, Tanja London and Rose Pasquarello Beauchamp will join Dale (our mannequin friend) to explore a weighted relationship dealing with body image and historical beauty ideals. This piece will integrate design, vintage video footage and, of course, unique props that portray striking, and sometimes haunting images, of our societal values regarding beauty.
The final piece of the evening is inspired by Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax. This dance looks at how this story serves as a metaphor for the larger world around us and the ‘thneeds’ that tempt us to destroy the beauty in our world. Using the text of Dr. Seuss and incorporating vibrant, quirky movement this piece will let your imagination unfold while hopefully reminding us of some important issues in our culture.
This show is fully accessible to both Deaf and hearing audiences.
