Written in 1978 by acclaimed human rights activist and first president of the Czech Republic, Vaclav Havel, Protest challenges us to question what we would do if forced to choose between survival and revolution. In this politically fueled play we meet a dissident returning home after imprisonment and a rebel campaigning in protest against a corrupt government. But this distinctive interpretation of the typically male-driven drama will also feature counterparts for the two leads -- two females meant to emphasize the universality of the characters. Protest, once banned from the stage but now revered, is a rallying cry to the responsibility of individuals to take action in the face of political corruption. Learn More
<p>Jane Franklin Dance is pleased to announce the selection of Incidence to be performed in Mead Theatre Lab at Flashpoint in Washington in December. The Mead Theatre Lab, a program of the Cultural Development Corporation, nurtures and expands the visibility of up-and-coming and established performers and organizations. An advisory panel of noted theatre professionals selected Incidence for their 2008-2009 season. Jane Franklin Dance is tremendously excited to present this premiere collaboration.</p>
Incidence is a dance, music and installation art performance that explores the influences of chance. Artist Howard Connelly has created a life size, kinetic sculpture that acts as a trigger for the dancers and the music. The installation functions like a roulette wheel in which a croupier spins a wheel in one direction, and a ball in the opposite direction. In Incidence music and dance, like the wheel and ball, meet by coincidence dependent on the turn of the installation.</p> <p>
</p> <p>Composer Gina Biver will create separate pieces of music varying in length, texture and style. The position of Connelly’s sculpture art installation will dictate dancers' movements along with the music.
