Friends of Camp Little Notch is pleased to host Contradiction Dance during Women's Weekend. In addition to general camp programming, Contradiction Dance will be presenting BOUNDARIES, a dance-theatre response to the #yesallwomen Twitter hashtag and social media campaign that occurred in May 2014 after the Isla Vista killings in which women shared their personal stories about harassment and discrimination on social media. Through movement, text, song, and multi-media BOUNDARIES jumps off from there and explores feminine sensuality, strength and vulnerability. Some of the words used by audience members to describe BOUNDARIES's two successful, sold-out performance runs in Washington, DC earlier this year were: powerful, engaging, poignant, amazing, beautiful, and evocative.
In addition to the performance, Contradiction Dance will hold a Community Workshop where participants will experience a guided warm-up, an introduction to Kelly King’s B.E.S.S.T. definition of dance through movement, and create a personal movement vocabulary to express strength and vulnerability through a specific choreographic structure. Contradiction Dance company members will participate in the workshop, bridging the divide between dance professional and dance enthusiast. All participants will be invited to participate in the performance of BOUNDARIES.
We hope you can join us for this very special event, plus CLN's magic and traditions including singing, campfires, s'mores, hikes to the furnace, swimming, boating, workshops, and arts & crafts.
