ATTENDED: Sat., Sept. 7, 9 p.m., Fleischer Sanctuary
CLOSES: Sun., Sept. 15
BRIEF SELF-DESCRIPTION: “Come into a world that's been here long before you. Overexposed and unemotional, Cavidad unravels the complexities of love, fear, and attraction. Lose yourself in the movement with fluorescent light sculptures in a cold environment that reflects the people in it. A dance experience unlike any other.”
WE THINK: Cavidad is perfectly suited to the narrow constraints of the Fleisher Sanctuary. The five dancers navigate a short hallway in the Sanctuary, cavernous and otherwise silent with soaring ceilings, and only illuminated, harshly, by two fluorescent light sculptures that the dancers manipulate to change the focus of the piece. The women, costumed in heavy capes over a dark Spanish-laced ensemble fit the into darkly paneled space, melted in with the concrete, marble, and sorrowful saints, monks and mother-mary sculptures that also observe the piece. This technically gifted cast executes crisp, well-choreographed movements to a haunting techno-chanting soundtrack. The three women controlled three distinct expressions, one hopeful, one impassive, one mercurial, which subtly shifted the tone of their respective movements as they interacted with each cast member. Cavidad felt personal, and inspiring. We found that this highly enjoyable show went by too quickly. Encore!
