The Black Space, coming Aug. 30- Sept. 2

It’s time to give you the low down, the nitty gritty on our upcoming show.  I’ll start with an image:

Next, I will give you a little description.

Fresh Arts invites audiences into the visual and visceral world where the performing and visual arts meet in The Black Space by Lydia Hance’s Frame Dance Productions. The Black Spaceis a multi-media dance installation and performance, running August 30 through September 2 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10.

Participatory and intimate in design, The Black Space explores the concept of forgiveness and the dichotomy between the sanity and healthiness of letting go and the unresolved anxiety that results from holding on to how others have wronged us. The Black Space is live dance performance, dance-on-screen, new sound scores, and the instinctive need to find forgiveness in the midst of injury.

Frame Dance Productions is dedicated to making innovative and vulnerable works.  Frame Dance gives permission to the viewer to interact in any way, to allow the audience to shape both their own experiences and the experiences of the other audience members. The space is intimate, and there is no stage. Patrons are encouraged to enter the performance at any time after 8 p.m., walk through the space, get close to the dancers, interact with the projections, and shape their own experience. Each performance will conclude by 9 p.m. and the audience will be encouraged to stay for a reception with the artists.
