Season Kick Off

Family Photos (2021)
Dancers are paired with projections, images from the performer’s childhood or from a past generation. The dissolving images hint at the passage of time and the persistence of change.  The audience observes from the enclosed space of the smaller gallery, and then follows the dance as it resolves in the main gallery.
Choreography: Jane Franklin in collaboration with the performers
Video: Jane Franklin,
Music: Steven Rogers, Luna Music
Dancers: Philip Baraoidan, Carly Johnson, Kelsey Rohr, Brynna Wilder,
Amy Scaringe
