Fuse Theatre and New Ground Theatre Dance (NGTD) are partnering to combine the healing aspects of dance into a new one-woman show, Echoes of Them, by Chelsea Unzner. Stacey Ardelean, Fuse Artistic Director and Coleen Lorenz will co-direct an integrated performance of theatre and modern dance. Written and performed by Chelsea Unzner, Echoes, explores grief and bereavement through the eyes of five characters struggling to come to terms with the loss of a loved one. NGTD ensemble will create integrated modern dance pieces around the themes presented in the production. Filled with emotional highs and lows created by memories and loss, the text is rich for incorporating many of the healing values held by NGTD and social awareness values of Fuse Theatre. This collaborative effort will offer an integrated performance with elements of storytelling, healing dance and visually juxtaposed art forms.
Note: Sunday's performance includes a special workshop. Participants will enjoy Echoes of Them by Chelsea Unzner with a special movement & theatre workshop with Stacey Ardelean and Coleen Lorenz. Includes a reception afterwards with the artists. The audience will enjoy an afternoon of movement exploration using the themes of the play. No dance experience necessary!
