Infusion was pleased to offer physical theatre track as a part of the Ad Deum Dance Company summer intensive in Biel, Switzerland. Students of all levels from across Europe gathered to dance and mime, filling the afternoon elective track of physical theatre with 8-20 students every day. Exploring movement concepts such as transfer of weights, statues, creatures, characters the students helped develop presentations to share at the end of the week. Their works explored ideas of war, peace, famine, shipwreck, and rescue. Compelling stories told through the body.

The week finished with a double bill performance by Infusion and Ad Deum, celebrating beauty, sacrifice, joy, lament, freedom, and yearning.

Follow this Infusion teamed up with Swiss mime duo Artbeat, for an evening of antics and improve in a the beautiful city of Thun. Audience suggestions helped tell the story of Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Dragon, like you’ve never seen it before!

Springs Summer School

We were pleased for Infusion’s Dan Cossette to be teaching for Springs Dance Company at their annual London Summer School. This brought aspiring dancers, and first time movers, from across England and Scotland, to receive technique instruction and creative/choreographic activities. The students developed their own dance which they presented before the main company’s evening performance at the end of the week. Springs performed Bread of Life, a beautiful depiction of Christ and the community and relationship he seeks with his disciples through the entryway of the bread and the wine. Following a similar theme the students brought vibrant images of unity-through-beautiful diversity as they explored their theme, One Body, One Church. Individuals’ movement blended into ensemble designs, before a network of connected dancers became so entwined that even a slight movement from a single member of the structure sent echoes through the entire formation. Great job dancers!

Project Dance Paris, a third year…

Under the statue of the People, a.m. before the show…

 

The Project Dance Foundation has been offering free dance festivals in the open squares of major cities around the world, dancing for hope, inspiration, and healing, since they started in New York City after the terror attacks on 9/11. Infusion was pleased to participate a third time at their Paris event, in the memorable Place de la Republiqué!

 

 

 

 

People stood or sat for hours, watching. Speaking with members of the festival staff and dancers, many people made it clear that the event meant much more to them than just a bit of diversion; it was life changing!

Spring’s Springs

Thanks to Springs Dance Company for an amazing tour. Infusion’s Dan Cossette joined a cast of 5 in Bread of Life. The thoughtful and beautiful contemporary dance show reflects of the Christian tradition of bread and wine and the person of Jesus Christ, following the characters’ struggle to discover the living presence of Jesus between the old rituals.

Show Launch Success

Special thanks to all those who came or contributed to the launch of our anti human trafficking show Just Sex.
