We respectfully ask for your tax deductible financial assistance to help with the flow in our actions.  Chris Ferris & Dancers presents dance that is brought to you with the vibrancy of unique and quirky action weaving an event that puts you squarely into the present tense.  There is nothing like live performance.  Be with us through our leaps, falls, bounces, and slices.  We offer sweat, heavy breathing, and an eyeful of action that gets you dancing within yourself.  We offer live original music made specifically with each dance.

 

Chris Ferris & Dancers aims to contribute to the culture of dance by creating an acute awareness of movement and its many possibilities so that you can view your everyday life from another dimension.  Movement is a large communicator.  We have been speaking this language of limbs, torso, mind, heart, and soul in New York City for over 28 years.  Be a part of this tradition by making it possible for us to pay artists and meet the costs of theater rental, rehearsal space, technical staff, and publicity.

CHRIS FERRIS & DANCERS’ NEWEST PROJECT

Unquantifiable consists of 10 performers expressing the me, them and other. The personal satisfaction of one’s own voice divides, only to form a full melody in the net of time and space. As one observes, the unconnected things begin to connect. The connections are by coincidence and become intentional as the phrases of movement and music catch on one another reveling in the harmony. The dancers can hide in plain sight, take an unswerving strong path, crisscross in confusion, and meld in amoeba form. Musicians will move throughout the space using wireless pickups to play an “electro-acoustic score" mixed and created by Loren Dempster.

 

When is unison confining and when is it fulfilling? When does being alone make one feel safe or conversely vulnerable? When does a complex group eliminate inclusion of others or even audience? How do the performers invite the audience in with proximity and focus? When trying to survive (or enjoy) a crowd, when does one yield or need to stand their own space? Performers claiming their own space or yielding to others will reflect the many possibilities of individuality and interconnectivity by using movement and sound. The audience will leave with a heightened awareness of their fellow humans that make up their environment. This dance is a celebration of our uniqueness coexisting in harmony.
