Expanse Movement Arts Festival 2012 – This Displace

This frenetic, occasionally jarring, new work by the Good Women Dance Collective considers the social behavior of many creatures including human beings.  Stripped down to instincts, these animals are attracted to light that ultimately motivates and shapes the way they move.

More from the Backwater


I feel that adding more Backwater images to this blog might be overkill, but I really loved this production and hope to see it again or see similar productions that combine theatre, dance, music, and visual media into something truly powerful and original.


Good Women Being Great

The innovative core of the Good Women Dance Collective perform Distaff at the Expanse Movement Arts Festival.  When my son decides to allow it,  I have been working through the edit of all the great images I had the fortune of capturing at this years festival.  While working this morning, I discovered this rather compelling portrait from their Expanse set.
