Americans have a history of protesting in a variety of ways: signs, sit-ins, marching or fighting; it’s in our blood. But hopefully, they won’t protest the premiere of inFluxdance’s Justice for Some, where protest is the theme. Independent touring company inFluxdance moves more than its dancers. Beginning in 2005 in Boston, then spending time in Charlottesville, Va., the company has settled here this year as the Sugar Space’s artist in residence, prepping for the assignment weekly since February.
Artistic directors Alysia Woodruff and Rose Pasquarello Beauchamp have created a crossdisciplinary, multimedia-heavy program that includes collaboration from dancers, a composer, an architect, a designer and a videographer. inFluxdance’s goal is to shed light on an important subject with an accessible dance language, for all levels of appreciation.
Woodruff says, “It’s more literal than most moderndance performances in Utah.”
