Incandescence was inspired by the need for warmth on a cold winter’s night. The word “incandescence” refers to something emitting both light and warmth. Eau Claire Dance Festival seeks to further explore this idea, considering what things in life make us feel brightness or warmth. Incandescence seeks to synthesize modern dance, music, and writing all into one cohesive performance. The three choreographed pieces relate to inspiration and physical heat. The third piece enumerates on coming to the light after a dark struggle. The fourth portion is improvisational and relies on the words and phrases given by the writers to inspire the movements. Incandescence will feature three musicians, including Jeremy Boettcher, Tim Sullivan, and Josh Gallagher, as well as four writers, namely Jason Splichal, Andy Patrie, Julian Emerson, and BJ Hollars. The dancers include Zoe Plewa, Christy Dobbratz, Jacob Nehrbass, and Eau Claire Dance Festival director Emily Emerson.
Doors open at 7:00. The event begins at 7:30 and will last around one hour including intermission. Cost is $10. Beer and wine will be available for purchase.
