Where fierce femininity and intergenerational dance meet: ‘O my soul’
O My Soul is a vigorous dance project weaving together an intergenerational cast of feminine bodies with a lifetime of raw and real sensations, grounded in the company’s signature aesthetic of strong and fiercely feminine dance. The 1-hour dance work interconnects compelling solos, duets, and dynamic group performances with intriguing interactive props and memorable sound scores. The title of the project, O my soul, echoes a biblical phrase often sought in times of trial. Step into a captivating journey through the raw and profound emotions of a lifetime with O my soul, a one-of-a-kind dance project featuring a diverse cast of women aged 16-70’s.
After two years of artistic culmination, O my soul emerges as the company’s first ever full-length evening performance in Montclair, NJ, home of Artistic Director Norton since 2013.
Made possible by funds from the Essex County Division of Cultural Affairs, a partner of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
