Counter Trafficking July

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

Eyes and Ears

Infusion dancers Dan and Rachel

Infusion Physical Theatre was pleased to be a part of the East Cambridgeshire Community Safety Partnership! As part of their vulnerable persons awareness campaign called Eyes and Ears, we presented a snippit from our anti-human trafficking work Somebody’s Daughter, in the Lady Chapel of the Stunning Ely Cathedral. It was a powerful event, talking with city and county councillors, police men and women, and people from all sectors sharing their stories about the horribly local problem of trafficking. It was also great to hear about the many things people are doing to confront it.

We were especially grateful for the kind words the police said, thanking us for our visual and compelling way of helping people engage with the topic. We hope to work with several of our new friends again soon! Thanks to the Romsini Centre for setting this up!

Switzerland, summer 2018…

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!

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!
