SKIN DANCE COMPANY presents 'ECCENTRICA' The 2011 Project
The ECCENTRICA project is three day series of performances and workshops based around the concept to engage the audience into a world of subconscious thought and energies through Dance. ECCENTRICA is expected to catapult this coming MAY 2011 at the AARON DAVIS HALL for two nights which will include a workshop prior to the show in contemporary and afro-Jazz fusion dance which will be free to sponsors, surrounding communities and public lenders.
These works choreographed by Thompson will reflect on the human emotional, physical, mental, political and karmic positions in its current environment. Creative expression and passion is what the start of this project is about! This project will allow the audience to feel as if they can connect directly to dance and theatre without breaking the bank for it. High quality performance should not only be accessible to the economically stable. We need our new generation of youth and mature audiences to be exposed to the arts on a more "down to earth" tone. Not all of our communities can afford the price of a broadway show. Henceforth our agenda:
This will be a production development performance based around the choreographic works of Tina Thompson. The invited artists and guests will play their prospective roles as future performers in our ultimate vision. "We want to take the show on tour! and be able to continue the project until it reaches vast audiences asking for more!"
ABOUT OUR COMPANY:
