Jane Franklin Dance and Arlington Arts Present The View From Here
October 1, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Jane Franklin Dance presents The View From Here, a program of new and recent works that resonate with Arlington’s outdoor venue, Lubber Run Amphitheatre. With a premiere work by award-winning choreographer Rob Priore, a season opening commission by Philip Baraoidan, and a recent work inspired by Arlington itself, sit back and embrace fall at Lubber Run.
The connotation of “eyesore”, an unpleasant sight in a public place, spins in Jane Franklin’s community inspired work EyeSoar. Space is getting tighter and longtime businesses nestle within changes and new development in an industrial neighborhood. EyeSoar is a tribute to the S Four Mile Run Drive, Arlington neighborhood, its landscape and the people who call it home.
Forty+, a group of performers past the age of 40, bring to life “This is My Voice”, a poem by Shane Koycan. Brynna Wilder’s “This One Is Mine” explores what it means to “make your voice heard.” We all have thoughts, opinions, and voices; all different and all beautifully unique. “This is my voice, there are many like it, but this one is mine.”
“Tales of Moria” choreographed by Philip Baraoidan is a work commissioned by Jane Franklin Dance, to open the 2021/2022 Season. The piece explores the consequences of fate meddling in relationships. Are we destined to be in partnerships because of our choices or are we on a predetermined track to meet people? With weight-sharing, touch, fluid movements, and storytelling the dance weaves an exciting motif of fleeting partnerships.
Rob Priore premiers a new work for Jane Franklin Dance that explores themes of commitment and expression. Serious fun ensues. Be ready for surprising movement and a delightful take on partnership.
