Biodance Breaks a Leg

The beautiful, breathtaking, and eerie dance company Biodance just closed a fascinating show at the Hochstein Music Hall for the fifth season in a row.  While inspiring solos and duets were a part of this creative feat, the two highlights of the evening were a reprise of the technically astounding Liebeslieder (a waltz by Strauss performed live by vocal group RESONANZ) and the Rochester premiere of No Dancing Allowed, a playful yet powerful nod to youth in WWII America. Both featured contemporary dance styles, which (for those of you who don’t know) means the abstract kind that makes you go “Hmmm?”

Choreographer Missy Pfohl Smith has worked with Envision in the past and commissioned us to record the event for the purpose of creating a DVD, and we are in the process of working on it now. When intern Jessica Thurston starts work at Envision at the end of the month, this will be one of her first projects.
