Literature of the Body

©Sasha Onyshchenko

“Inner visions embodied by sensuous physicality, revealed with searing honesty and poetic passion.”

Sensual and evocative movement that guides us into embracing our humanity. Under Margie Gillis’ artistic direction, the Legacy Project dancers reunite to bring you a poetic and somatic, impactful program.

Through two group works, the audience is treated to the inner workings of our soul’s journey, while shining a spotlight on the poetry that resides in the art of dance. The fi rst faces the hard truth that 1/3 of the world’s population are refugees and that number is expected to explode with Climate change. The second is from the world of James Joyce, who wrote the inner workings of a woman; Molly Bloom. Her world, her community, and her husband all start off in traditional gender but what follows is a river run of gender mixing.

Notions of vulnerability, forced social change, loss and disruption, and the joy and sensuality of life, all feature in this assemblage of works.
