Event description
Vissi Dance Theater Premiers Breathe, guest performances by Judith Sloan, Andrew Griffin, Lee Lund Studio of Dance and Poet Gold

About this event

Legendary club dancer, author, founder and modern dance choreographer, Courtney Ffrench, will premiere his most recent collaborative work Breathe, featuring music by Dr. Darrell Smith of the Dal Segno Trio and the New School of Jazz and Contemporary Music.

Breathe speaks of the servant trapped in a caste system that condemns the person to servitude for their entire existence. So low is this servant, that they are required to walk backwards while wiping away their foot prints, so they don’t offend. This servant will die as they were born; The Untouchable.

Section two explores the demand for pure physical labor through exploitation, manufactured wars, economic systems i.e., slavery, indentured service, serfdom and capitalism. This servant works at the pleasure of the ruling class and fights perpetually for the right of self-determination; The Picker.

Thousands of Korean women, were used as sex slaves to Japanese soldiers in World War 2. In fact, this atrocity was not limited to Korean women, but throughout history, men have shown a bottomless appetite for sexual exploitation. This servant is displayed ubiquitously through out the modern world, from street corners to glass-wall bedrooms in the Redlight District; The Comfort Woman.
