Form Contemporary Dance Theatre is proud to present Reflective/Vulnerable. The choreography guides, pushes, and pulls audience members through physically raw movements and emotional extremes. Reflective/Vulnerable, a mixed program, opens with an interactive video installation from guest artists from The Burlington Wholeshebang. From there, each work explores different worlds; joyful and quirky movement, the wandering rambling thoughts of the mind, and intense exploration of control, power and the people who follow and overthrow. One of the works showcases students from Arthouse, a not-for-profit youth arts organization that enables kids regardless of socioeconomic background to be transformed by the power of art. We are very proud to share the stage with our students from Arthouse in Reflective/Vulnerable. Please join us in the lobby at 1:30 pm or 7:00pm for a pre-show talk.
