dropshift and  Jill Moshman present, THRIVE, an evening of in-process experimental dance highlighting the sensory & whimsical.

dropshift dance, celebrating its 13th Anniversary Season in 2023 and praised for creating work which is “weird beautiful, playful and alluring” (Art Intercepts, Chicago) and “an ingenious offering” (Laura Molzahn, The Chicago Tribune) shows, bloom, (in-process) offering audiences a responsive movement improvisation with a score that explores a body: alone, as an extension of vibrant, whimsical fabrics, and finally in relation to and collaboration with others.  Dancers investigate themes of visibility and question their capacity to advocate strength and physical fulfillment/curiosities as a performer who gives permission to be seen and to be unseen while engaging in the act of care for one another and the dance.

Also on the program, 2 excerpts from dropshift alumna and independent New York based artist, Jill Moshman. unexplained phenomena finds the four performers working as one multi-functioning machine with emphatic moments of individuality and Every Single Thing is in-process and ongoing, discovering intimacy in opposition of physicality.
