Experience the real, personal journeys of the people and ecosystems in our midst in an exciting evening of dance performed by some of the DMV’s finest movement artists who share close ties with the Richmond cultural scene. Philip Baraoidan and Carly Johnson earned professional dance degrees from VCU. Visual artist Steve Ferretti, formerly from the DC area, now resides in Richmond. Choreography is by Krystal Collins, Jane Franklin, Horizon Miguel, Robert J. Priore and Philip Baraoidan.
A new work by Company | E artist Horizon Miguel, *8H Aquarius Moon” is an exploration of a personal, astrological placement and its relation to affection, intimacy and validation.
In Jane Franklin’s Barrier, scientists, naturalists and hobbyists comment on flight, migration and climate. Barrier draws a picture of connections to earth and to each other. People — like animals — move to react to a push or pull in their natural habitats. As we confront global issues, JFD invites audiences to experience the real, personal journeys of the people and ecosystems in our midst.
Tales of Moria choreographed by Philip Baraoidan explores the consequences of fate meddling in relationships. Are we destined because of our choices or are we on a predetermined track? With weight-sharing, touch, fluidity, and storytelling the dance weaves an exciting motif of fleeting partnerships.
Places – Jane Franklin’s Places is inspired by NVFAA’s exhibit “Art Optimism: Focus on Change and Sustainability. The shared leitmotif is one of optimism for improving our footprint on the planet. Artworks by Steve Ferretti Capture the Tides, Capture the Sun, Capture the Wind, Rosa Ines Vera Lotus Fields III, Sally Kaufman Rebirth, Marty Ittner Tangled Up in Blue and Suzanne Yurdin Shadows Run Deep motivate a response in movement. Media is by Nitsan Scharf Design.
Award-winning choreographer Robert J. Priore’s new work for Jane Franklin Dance, Esta Vida explores themes of family. Surprising movement and group partnership echo music by Silvia Perez Cruz and Silvania Estrada.
Krystal Leniece Collins presents Gossamer Hammer a mirrored reflection of the preposterous and precarious situations we find ourselves in.
