Flicker

presented: August 2018, Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival

dancers: Daniel Do, Conner Erickson, Dan Higgins, Madaline Maravillas, Emma Sargent, Kenzie Sharette, Alicia Trump

music: Christian Löffler, Tortoise, The Album Leaf, Else

Flicker focuses on life’s unsteady nature as seven dancers explore connections with their peers through an evening of dance. Each dancer has a different journey of physical, synchronous, and missed connections. The movement changes in quality, tempo, and location, serving as a reflection of humanity’s ability to fold, fall, and flee.

Filament, the second installment in Cat + Fish Dances' Fibers series, investigates the relationship between movement and inhabited environments.
