Into Development…

We are fundraising for a new show! Back us on Eventbrite…!

After 8 months of  intense research and logistics Infusion is taking on the issue of human trafficking.

We’re in development of a hard-hitting, soulful look into the modern day problem of human trafficking for sexual exploitation, to bring humanity and dignity to the trafficked persons on the street and on the other side of the webcam. The production is set to be a bone-jarring, high-energy, 30 minute physical journey through highs and lows of modern life in the digital age, staring down internet porn, human trafficking, and seduction of the human conscience. Through dance, mime, and original music Infusion crafts a 3D experience for all viewers of what happens when capitalism and desire meets poverty and desperation.

But can our attitudes change?

These are some stats. Help us change them!

•Worldwide more than 800,000 men, women, and children are trafficked over borders (or moved within their own country) every year
•77% of trafficked victims are women
•87% of trafficked victims are sexually exploited
•Human trafficking is a worldwide criminal activity with annual profits estimated to be $36 billion
•London police estimate that 70 percent of the 88,000 women involved in prostitution in England and Wales are under the control of traffickers

Project Dance Paris 2017

July 21-23, Infusion returns to the Capitol of Love with the Project Dance Foundation to bring hope and inspiration through offerings of dance and physical theatre. With special performances Friday; outdoor, all-day, free dance show in the Place de la Republique, Saturday; and master class offerings on Sunday for registrants, Project Dance Paris promises to be a weekend of artistic excellence and generosity.

This year’s free, open-air performance will be in the Place de la Republique Saturday July 22nd.

The previous year’s event came on the heels of the multiple terror attacks in France, and dancers were able to share, both from the stage, and personally with members of the public–representing many faiths and backgrounds–about hope, healing, and freedom through Jesus Christ.  One Parisian noted, “In this place, normally all you hear is people protesting. Today, everyone is so joyful–it’s a powerful statement!”

Bread of Life

Infusion is part of Springs Dance Company’s Bread of Life tour! We’re going quite a few places, so be sure to check out our upcoming events tab for the whole tour schedule. Meanwhile, we’re pleased to be hosted by City Church, Cambridge who kindly wrote this:

“After delighting us last year with their performance of “Inside Out”, Springs Dance Company are coming back to City Church Cambridge with another of their shows. This time they will be bringing us “Bread of Life” – an uplifting and thoughtful response to the invitation ‘Come and eat’. This is a powerful dance performance that explores a message at the heart of the Christian tradition of the Communion/Eucharist in a thought-provoking and innovative way. It is a visual and timeless expression of Jesus’ continual presence and his desire to be with us; a mesmerising reminder that the invitation came from Him, and offers an expression of a community with Him and with each other.

Come, bring your friends, and watch Dan Cossette and colleagues as they provide food for thought through the medium of contempory dance just in time for Easter.”

Saturday 8th April
7pm-9pm with performance starting at 7.30pm and lasting about an hour.
Tickets £5 (Under 16s free) available on the door.
Refreshments provided
