Counter Trafficking Show

Just Sex: a Counter Trafficking Show

A bold fusion of contemporary dance and physical theatre, Infusion takes a tour-de-force look at the backwards puzzle pieces of the life of a prostituted woman. Based on survivor stories and documentation, Infusion tackles human trafficking for sexual exploitation, and finds a surprise culprit. Hard-edged, fast-paced and soulful, this wordless epic exposes the powers and players of one of the world’s fastest growing criminal trades: sex.

Developed in partnership with Cambridge Centre of Applied Research in Human Trafficking (CCARHT)

Ages 15+ due to mature subject matter

Thursday 4th July, 2019

E33’s Somewhere in the Middle, Wandsworth Arts Fringe

Infusion was pleased to have been involved with the Wandsworth Arts Fringe, dancing for our colleague group E33 Dance Company this past weekend. Director (and long time friend!) Rachel Riveros brilliantly re-staged the contemporary ballet/capoiera fusion Somewhere in the Middle, complete with live musicians and international dance artists. Our own Daniel Cossette reprised his original roll (from 2014) in the lively and beautifully-designed work once more, as well as featuring in a number of smaller works.

Infusion’s Melanie Cossette presented “The Sound of Silence,” a dance by American choreographer Randall Flinn (Ad Deum Dance Company, Houston, TX) in the subsequent Creative Soul Spa. Here workshops participants engaged in a multi-sensory “arts spa.” Pop-up style dance performances fell between fine arts and dance workshops, with gaps to hang out in a chill out room,  and receive hand massage–refreshment for soul, body, and mind. One audience member said, “Thank you. Your dance reminded me I’m not alone the silences.”
