This devised piece, told almost entirely through dance and movement, follows the stories of two individuals who experience relationship abuse and assault. Their stories progress at differing rates, but periodically converge into echoed patterns of abuse, both verbal and physical.

Without being explicit, Kaleidoscope was inspired by the true stories of seven college age women, and focuses not only on the event of the assault, but the patterns of abuse that exist before and the complex healing afterwards.

Believing survivors is crucial in today’s climate. Kaleidoscope offers audiences that there is no true end to the stories and patterns of abuse. Emily, the creator and director, hopes that with this show, more people will choose to listen to what is happening and will choose to stand up and help survivors, as survivors cannot always move forward or solve the issue on their own.

Run time: 50 minutes with no intermission

Allen Russell | Gina Laurenzi Dance Project: /ˌmaskəˈrād/

Saturday, November 2nd // 6:00pm & 8:00pm

at the Danceworks Studio Theatre


Oh the masks we wear. Trapped amidst the false personas swarming the space, she sees the room for what it truly is – grotesque! The observer becomes the observed as actions and interactions cause the mask of this fantasy world to shift, to fall away. In quiet corners and between glances, a glimpse into each individual’s reality is revealed as they break from the facade. It’s infectious…

Movers of the Gina Laurenzi Dance Project dance this tale to life through the haunting compositions of Allen Russell. View the work of local artists Jenny Urbanek and Christal Wagner before each concert, and connect with /ˌmaskəˈrād/ collaborators in an after-party & artist mingle following the 8:00pm performance.
