With extraordinary dancers and eloquent choreography, Clairobscur Dance presents it’s evening: Supremacy Ride. This performance features Laurie Sefton’s choreography with two world premieres and her sensual 2017 work Girl, Get Off (with original sound score by Bryan Curt Kostors).
The evenings works include:
Supremacy Ride which was inspired by the 2016 election and based on the gestures of our current president.
Triptych: Experience in Defiance a trio of works created with Hip-Hop poet/spoken word artist Jason Chu and explores stories of personal connection in defiance of the pressure to streamline the diversity of experience.
Known for dense and detailed movements, Laurie Sefton’s award winning choreography is personal, emotional, and issue-based. It focuses on conveying complex ideas such as humanity, bullying, identity, climate change, memory loss, power, and sexuality. Dance has the power to be an action of change. It acts as a lens, magnifying concepts through abstraction and physicality, translating intangible ideas into movement. Choreography decodes emotional content and viscerally affects those who experience it. Ms. Sefton collaborates with researchers, composers, designers, poets and conceptual artists to investigate topics and develop a cohesive intention in her work.
