Breaking the Cycles

Final scene_edited.jpg

Breaking the Cycles offers the audience a unique way to view pole dance and contemporary dance work. This duet aims to reclaim feminine power and strength, merge contemporary dance with pole dancing in the theatre setting, and apply somatic movement principles to pole dancing performance and choreography. In doing so, we are breaking the cycles of female oppression, shifting the assumptions surrounding pole dancing, and developing a pole dance work using principles of Laban/Bartenieff Movement Studies.
