Lokasparśa Dance Projects
clyde forth, Artistic Director
This connection we share as humans is a challenge. Authentic experiences can appear too few and too difficult, and violence seems to breed like bacteria. Yet we do these things: dance, paint, draw, bang together new objects out of old objects, create (or simply find) beauty amidst inner and outer chaos. Some do this to answer a personal calling, or because this world is hurt and to do so helps. Because Earth needs a witness. Many witnesses.
You are invited to witness with us, to give your voice, by supporting our newest work. Our mission to dismantle barriers and create intimacy through performance and movement education has manifested some beautiful experiences since we formed in 2014. We have solid plans for much more with Bone Chorus: three theater performances, a site-specific workshop in New Hampshire, open rehearsals and classes. Please support Lokasparsa Dance Projects today and help us embody this vision.
Creating understanding from our collective body is how Lokasparśa Dance Projects bears witness. We’ve been in the studio exploring what it means to see through ourselves, to experience a nakedness of body and spirit. We also grapple (literally and figuratively) with loss, with fear and abandonment, with the hopes of the single and the paired and the massed. Distilled into the naked bones of each individual is the resonance of both loss and joy, a song. We give voice in pairs and in groups - a Bone Chorus.
