FRINGE: World Premiere of the Multimedia Dance Performance, "Altered Archives" July 11th

A new multimedia collaboration between Motion X Dance DC and designer/photographer, Lindsay Benson Garrett, will premiere at this year’s Capital Fringe Festival. Altered Archives challenges the commonly held notion that we can’t change the past.

Memories are not static snapshots, tableau's forever frozen in time. They are malleable facets of our mind whose shape ebbs and morphs with each influence that spills into our consciousness. Current events and mindsets color the meaning we assign to previous milestones - the future and the past are entwined. How we choose to retell our story influences the trajectory of our lives and ultimately our own identity. We can redefine the meaning of our history. We can alter our own archives.

Original choreography by Stephanie Dorrycott, with guest choreography by Elysia Greene, will be performed by six dancers against a backdrop of abstract video illustrations. There will be five performances of the show at Eastman Theater at Gallaudet University in July. 

This show is a standout amongst the dance shows in the Capital Fringe Festival this year.
