Figures in Motion

An evening of dance, celebrating figures in motion. Three unique works will be presented as part of Figures in Motion, presented together as part of the Living Things Festival:

Container // Vanessa Goodman
Container is a new work by choreographer and performer Vanessa Goodman that explores heritage, culture and resilience.

A Fine Kind of Madness // Heather Ware
A body in conflict searches for balance, for resolution. A paralytic state of fear is made bearable by ones own physical being. What is needed within a person to move forward when every instinct is screaming to stop. What if you can’t go back, can’t downclimb. Can we give ourselves over to the beauty of falling apart?

In Fiction // Vanessa Goodman
Blurring the lines between what is real and what is imagined, “In Fiction” is based on the fact and fiction surrounding caul births, the extremely rare phenomenon where a baby is born cloaked in the amniotic sack.
