Falcon Project: A Meditation on Movement and Gender Identity

Ellis Wood Dance

Falcon Project is presented in two sections. In the first section, Wood teams up with The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center in Manhattan. LGBT community members were invited to express their gender identity through movement in a series of workshops  with Ellis Wood Dance and ten members will perform live.

The second section, danced by the five members of Ellis Wood Dance, is a highly technical, physical journey with an intense dramatic edge. Movement will prevail, with a strong theatrical expression of each performers' own experience of gender.

A short documentary film explaining the process of working with the LGBT members and their personal take on the experience will also be shown.
