Intoxicating Music and Dance at the Hamilton Fringe Fest

Form Contemporary Dance Theatre Presents “Storm and Silence”

Form Contemporary Dance Theatre is proud to present its production of Storm and Silence at the Hamilton Fringe Festival! Storm and Silence takes audiences on an intoxicating journey into contemporary dance and theatre. Join us on this journey by experiencing Storm and Silence, which features two extraordinary works in one show: I:Solo and Storm and Silence. I:Solo explores our insatiable need for expression within the confines of our humanity. Storm and Silence is inspired by the life of Lorelei, a professional dancer living in Germany during WWII and the GDR era. Forced to abandon her profession, Lorelei escapes into the Elbe River and enters a mythological world of loss and death that invites spectators to consider that we have no better task than to take pleasure in our lives and pursue our passions.

Featuring an exceptional cast and live music, Storm and Silence invites its audiences to question definitions of power, control, longing, pleasure, freedom and escape. How do we find pleasure? Who are our oppressors? Where do we escape? At what cost?

Form intends to create art that is inviting for audiences, art that combines extremes in its emotional content and art that is informed by human experiences. The movement we choreograph is expressive and physical, focused on the action and the intention behind it. We aim to create works of art that have a raw and vulnerable essence.

"Listening is one of the most potent catalysts for creation." Lisa Emmons, artistic director
