Group Motion and Olive Prince Dance present JUNCTURE


In a double bill performance, Group Motion and Olive Prince Dance will share the stage on April 25, 26 and 27 at the Performance Garage during “Juncture.” This evening of revisited works will feature two Group Motion performances from the early 90s that stand as a hallmark of their generation, an in-depth work by Olive Prince Dance that explores the female psyche, and a new work by Group Motion co-founder Brigitta Herrmann.

Group Motion Company presents two revived works “Visitors” (1993) and “Inroads” (1992) in honor and celebration of their 45th anniversary. Both of these works represent high points of the 90’s generation of the company, with “Inroads” being considered the signature piece of that time.

The common ground or “juncture” between the Group Motion works is that of traveling, and the archetypes of arrival and departure. In “Visitors,” in a more fantasy driven or playful way, the ‘travelers’ arrive from ‘the other side,’ or a different space and time making impact or intervention on the inhabitants of the present reality, in “Inroads,” in a more dramatic way, they escape an endangered and collapsing reality (that of isolation and alienation) and depart into a new one, making inroads into a new territory (that of connection and community).

Of this evening of performance Manfred Fischbeck, Artistic Director of Group Motion, says, “It is very meaningful and exciting to present these works in conjunction with Brigitta Herrmann’s and Olive Prince’s works, with whom the Group Motion Company shares long and important history.”
