Jane Franklin Dance premieres a new media collaboration with artist Bryan Leister, and repeats Incidence, a dance and installation art project.

Indistinct Boundaries blurs the lines between expectations and what actually happens; between virtual and real. It explores the dynamics of polar opposites by animating shadows and by casting shadows of objects that are not there. Bryan Leister has generated the music mathematically through cycles and wave forms and has created animated organic structures bsed on mathematical algorithms that evolve over time. The dance, created in six parts, is an environment that amplifies and isolates the projections.

A previous partnership with Bryan Leister, Temporal Interference, combined dance with interactive sound and video to create a “gentle tugging at the fabric of space and time.” (Washington City Paper)

Incidence, premiered in 2008 at Mead Theatre Lab at Flashpoint, is a dance, music and installation art piece that follows the non-linear trajectory of chance. It uses a life size kinetic sculpture by Howard Connelly and music by Gina Biver.
