Collaborating from Salt Lake City, UT to Charlottesville, VA, inFluxdance will premiere “justice for some”, originally created during the Sugar Space Resident Artist Grant. Sugar Space Resident Artists receive 40 hours of free space and financial and logistical production support for the creation of an original work.
Alysia Woodruff and Rose Pasquarello Beauchamp have joined forces again to bring together a colossal collaboration between architect, composers, vidoegraphy, lighting design, choreography and dancers.
Collaborators include Aurie Hsu (composer), Steven Kemper (composer), Erin Mayfield (videographer), Libby Haslam (set design) and dancers, Rachael Shaw, Sofia Gorder, and Josie Patterson.
After a long history of working together inFluxdance brings forth their artistic spin on the history and future of protest and challenge the notions of equality. While highlighting injustices, this show brings forth the concept of standing up for what you believe.
The performance is constructed as a full length show that jumps from topic to topic all under the general motif of protest in its images, inspiration and creation. From dancing inside your television to marching and chanting, this montage of images will excite and enrage as well as challenge you to open your mind and pose the question… what are you fighting for?…. Rose and Alysia’s choreography styles, though different, share elements of release-based technique and body unit expression, both inverted and upright.
Alysia Woodruff and Rose Pasquarello Beauchamp are interested in modern dance as a way to build community and facilitate the exchange of ideas.
inFluxdance is a contemporary dance theatre collective comprised of artists interested in exploring and creating accessible works without boundaries. Our goal is to blur the edges of our respected defined mediums. Our intention is to provoke viewers to think, feel, and respond to the depths of our work.
