Saturday at 2:00pm

 

Sans Souci Festival of Dance Cinema's "Kids + Dance + Film"

Lafayette Public Library Meeting Room

A girl. Some stairs. Some railings. A door. It's frame. A wall. A ledge. The floor. Some grates. A bench. A window. Curtains... Never Finished: Explorations at the Finnish is a truly inventive, site-specific exploration that is sensuous, full of texture and trickiness rooted in weight and elasticity, expanding perspective on the infinite ways a person can interact with the space around them. Crawl through and explore with the dancer, indulge in gravity defying/gravity defining feats, witness tender moments of connection, and watch a space come to life.
