Event Details

De/Formed Revival blends physically rigorous contemporary dance with Renaissance art visuals. Three dancers will take you on a poignant journey of self-discovery set in the movement metaphor of sculptures coming to life. It asks: how do we emerge from a mould that someone else has built around us? As we struggle to let go of the past, we find the moments of real connection that make the struggle worth it.

De/Formed Revival is a work of imaginative movement, striking imagery inspired by visual art, and a story that touches something in all of us: a daring hope for transformation.

The performance will include a short talk by the Artistic Director, Alina Sotskova, a professional dance artist and a practicing psychologist. Alina will talk about the interweaving of psychology, dance, art, history, and the creative process of this piece.
