Lindsey Renee Derry/L i n s d a n s


In May, L i n s d a n s joins Bay Area Dance Week with a reprise of recently debuted solo show POR-TRAI-TURE before taking the show to Europe later in the month. On Friday, May 2nd from 8 to 9 PM at the San Francisco Conservatory of Dance, audience members will be able to experience an intimate studio run of the show, entirely for free! In the hour that Derry journeys through a shifting landscape of complex movement languages and unpredictable electronic music, a collection of moving portraits emerge. In them, a multi-faceted artist is revealed. Reaching many energetic and emotional extremes, from the cool and meditative to the fiery and explosive, Derry fearlessly exhibits her many sides. Text and video projection serve as the connective tissue that links one solo to the next. In these human inspired tableaus, the viewer sits intimately with a side of Derry that is both delicately venerable and highly personal. Interested in exploring not only her choreography but also the micro-realms of several choreographers in one evening, Derry approached some of the contemporary dance scene's most compelling and innovative choreographers with her idea. From her curiosity and through the support of guest choreographers Jose Navas (Montreal), Sidra Bell (New York), Alex Ketley (San Francisco), and Iratxe Ansa (Barcelona) as well as video designer Erin Malley (San Francisco), POR-TRAI-TURE came to be.
