What happens when you unplug?
That’s what two sets of dancers and a visual artist will explore in a February 11-12 performance What If at the Sidney and Berne Davis Art Center in downtown Fort Myers.
The event brings together choreographer Alyce Bochette of Fort Myers and members of the Sarasota-based modern dance company Moving Ethos. This show uncovers the possibilities exposed when we unplug from our technological overdose. Viewers will be thrust into a world of creativity and exploration, a place where we might find ourselves when we free our minds from electronic noise and allow ideas to come to life. Release the electronic sounds and replace them with the quiet of a gallery. Open your senses to absorb the beauty and emotion of dance.
Bochette, a former member of the Mark Morris Dance Group, brings classical dance to the forefront of this stage as she presents two works from her repertory: a ballet waltz inspired by the music of Tchaikovsky and a classical modern dance set to the solo piano music of Grieg, Schubert and Brahms.
Moving Ethos is led by Artistic Directors Leah Verier-Dunn and Courtney Smith Inzalaco. These two Florida-raised choreographers will present a series of duets ranging from comical to aggressive to subtle and intimate, showing their range of ability and skill.
Joining the dancers is Olympian and artist Liston Bochette, who will take us by macro-view into the world of creation through a photo journey of his drawings depicting “Cellular Life from Conception to Termination” set to the music of Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon.”
Organizers hope the event will help create a bond between artists from these two Southwest Florida cities. Experience a true treat – Art in Motion – and a time for all to “unplug”. Get your tickets today!
