In collaboration with Justin Cimino (Director, Founder & Artistic Director of Pigeonholed Theater) HOPE SALAS & SMASHWORKS DANCE devised a work highlighting the contributions of the female clowns/performers of the silent era.
Inspired by James Thiérrée, Pina Bausch & Bill Irwin, Hope Salas Productions & Smashworks Dance Co. intend to intersect the control and form of the dancer; the curiousity, joy, and discovery of the clown; and the inspiration of the truth seeking storyteller. We convey poignant theatrical, transportative moments, aligned to our mission of capitalizing on the “voices” of women in the arts and their power to create change.
Featuring performances by: Hope Salas, Ashley McQueen, Justin Cimino, Sarah Dodd, Manon Hallay, Sarah Starkweather
