Where the ^&*$% are we going?

Frame Dance is on a journey.  We reframe the performance experience, we provide entry points to the creative experience that might not be characteristic of a “dance performance,” we strip the confines away from the role of the audience.  We invite you into the performance/event/installation/exhibition.  We have so many words for what we create, and yet, I pull hard and fast away from the word “show.”  Because that’s just contrary to what we’re trying to do.  We’re not showing you something.  We invite you into something.

…and what is that?

The human experience.  We pull apart, dissect, magnify, glamorize or honestly reveal the intricacies of this thing called “living.”  Documenting life.  Revealing humanity.  Exposing the creative process, and living in the moment.  We never perform the same piece twice.  Never.  Just ask the dancers.  We screen the same film twice.  But never perform the same piece twice.  What’s the fun in that?  We don’t live the same day twice.

(yeah, yeah, I’ve seen Groundhog Day)

So our journey is this series of events, installations, films, and we progress in vision and through from event to event.  Each piece stands alone, but follow us, and you’ll see us completing a full thought on the role of audience in art experience, exposing and documenting life in our creations, and some flat out fabulousness.

In case you missed it, here’s the review of our last show.

Here’s the info on our upcoming show.

    I for one am glad that Frame never does the same show twice. But throughout history, companies have made a business of performing the same work over and over and over again. Need I mention the Nutcracker. I’m curious if what camp others fall into. Do you like the predictability of watching the same story told centuries over (which must truly amazing to capture hearts and minds for hundreds of years), or do you like the unexpected thrill of seeing something new?
