Jody Sperling/Time Lapse Dance presents two FREE showcase performances as part of the Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP) conference. The 30-minute program will feature Turbulence for the company’s six dancers and Clair de lune, one of Sperling’s signature Loie Fuller-style solos.

“Ms. Sperling is a compellingly focused performer . . . You think equally of nature and art: Georgia O’Keeffe’s flower paintings, the luminous trajectories of jelly fish, George Balanchine’s “Vienna Waltzes,” a chrysalis morphing rapidly into a butterfly. When the lights dimmed, and Ms. Sperling lifted her arms so that her sleeves folded back and up for her exit from the stage, she appeared like a grand and austere angel.” Claudia La Rocco, The New York Times

“[Turbulence] is a Loie Fuller-esque fantasia of swirling, undulating robes of frothy white silk, depicting dynamic currents of air. Assisted by long wands sewn into the rippling fabric, the dancers conjured billows, gusts and whirlwinds, tightly timed and coordinated patterns of hypnotic complexity.” – Eva Yaa Asantewaa, Infinite Body
