In this historic period of gender equality and the coming of age of the stature of women in the world, "BoSoma" epitomizes the tenor of our time. As a company of mostly woman, BoSoma Dance Company evokes and fuses remembrances of the aesthetic of Isadora Duncan and strength of Joan of Arc. The company projects a power which does not dampen their femininity. They perform with androgynous courage and conviction. The dancers are technically skilled and the choreography is solid composition beautifully danced. BoSoma is not just a company, it is a powerful statement. Don't miss the opportunity to experience this exciting and electric performance!
The weekend's performances will unveil a compilation of the company's repertory. Highlights include excerpts of the emotional journey of Moments (2012, the free spirited, sexy jazz inspired piece Nocturnal Creatures (2013), a powerful contemporary work for all women entitled Abyss (2013), as well as the audience favorite, Marionette (2010).
This special celebratory season brings two guest choreographers to share their work on the company. BoSoma welcomes Emmy Nominated award winning former Boston Ballet Company principle dancer and resident choreographer, Alfonso Figueroa. Alfonso was formally a member of Alvin Ailey as well as a soloist with Eliot Feld and held the position of Artistic Director of the Birmingham Ballet for four consecutive years. Mr Figueroa has generously re-set his work, Rodin; "A Tribute", on the company. "Eden", the first movement, with music by Charles Ives premièred in 1976 for the Bicentennial celebration concert of American composers, with the Birmingham Ballet. It wasn't until 1986 that the second movement "Venus" was choreographed, commissioned by a grant for a museum exhibit of the seascape paintings of "Waugh". The third movement, "Sparta", was choreographed in 1989 as a tribute to the work of the great master to coincide with a touring Rodin exhibit at the Peoria, Illinois Museum of Science. The full-length ballet was premiered in the Spring of 1989. Inspired by the works of Rodin, this ballet does not attempt to simulate the poses of this genius sculptor. Rather, it seeks to set into motion the essence of the movement his compositions suggest. Rodin; "A Tribute", invites our imagination on a journey with a great master and his vision of inspired moments forever frozen in time.
In addition, Former Giordano Dance Chicago dancer, Lindsey Leduc, will debut a new contemporary piece on the company. Lindsey's passion for creating fierce and fluid movement offers the audience the opportunity to experience the BoSoma dancers' exuberant personalities. Her work has been highly acclaimed in Chicago and she is eager to present her work in Boston.
BoSoma's mission is to make dance a captivating and accessible art form through dynamic performance and community education.
