FluxFlow Dance Project

Ursula

In a performance at the intersection of theater, dance, and original music, this new work by the Columbus-based FluxFlow Dance Project explores power dynamics and malleable definitions of freedom within the world of a fictional circus.

Sun, Dec 08 SHOW IS SOLD OUT

Utilizing the intersections between dance, theater, and music, Ursula explores social power dynamics and malleable definitions of freedom within the world of a fictional circus. Inspired by the story within Joanna Newsom’s song “Monkey & Bear,” the work moves between personal narratives and moments of abstraction while admiring how living beings use invention to cope with systems of control.

FluxFlow Dance Project is a multidisciplinary contemporary dance company cofounded by Filippo Pelacchi and Russell Lepley. Their rehearsal and teaching studio in nearby Clintonville has become an important part of the cultural fabric of Columbus.
