About the Work:
Carmen Caceres DanceAction's BLINDSPOT is a multimedia performance piece comprised of a movement-driven narrative inspired by George Orwell’s novel “1984,” with 4 to 8 dancers, live music by Eran Fink, live feed video, and media projections. It examines the current social, political, and economic reality during the Trump Era of the United States.
chrisbelldances' FlyAway is a tragic modern romance. A SadBoy (London Brison) meets Fu*kBoy(Chris Bell) meets NiceGirl(Nicole Baker) love triangle that is being directed by their personal demon (Katarina Lott) which is doing it's best to make them all unhappy. It seems far off, but we've all saught out love, we've all been let down by those we trusted, we've all wished the worst for another person, we've all longed for it to end. You are them, they are you, and there's a closing number with lots of sequins, skin and rad dance moves so be sure to watch till the end. FlyAway features a soundtrack of love songs from the 20th century, costumes by Dav Burrington and movement direction and choreography by Chris Bell.
