Backhausdance returns to the Barclay with Incandescent, Jennifer Backhaus’ first evening-length work, which premiered in 2010 in New York City.
Based on the theme of illumination, Ms. Backhaus explores light in both a physical and spiritual sense. Incandescent evokes a sense of discovery and expression of the human experience by igniting the internal shadow and bringing it to light. The piece has dancers shifting through various configurations of hundreds of light bulbs suspended from above with creative lighting techniques that help express the spectrum of emotions they experience on their journey. The human spirit glows when it is ignited by self awareness, creativity and the connection to others.
Backhausdance, Orange County’s premier contemporary dance company, was recently hailed as “one of the seven emerging dance companies in North America” by the Joyce SoHo in New York City. The company is known for its eclectic and dynamic vocabulary and for original movement that is physically demanding and strong yet fluid.
