Aflight 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, we invite you to experience the real, personal journeys of the people and ecosystems in our midst.
Called a “smart movement-based work” by (DC Theatre Scene), Beauty and the Beat is a surprising comedy inspired by Tom Waits song “What’s He Building in There.” A neighbor’s style of interaction becomes the focal point of gossip, as four friends weave through dysfunctional actions in a hilarious—and subversive—stir.
“Shorthanded,” an “immediately compelling” (Dance Metro DC) work, visually represents stories of coming of age. Reminisce with an inter-generational cast and revisit objects tied to life landmarks; the at-the-time impact of cassette tape, VHS, paper dolls, IBM 3033, Shorthand notation and other blips on the relentless march of cultural change. Featuring: Jane Franklin Dance with Forty+.
