Tran/Re/Per/form is an investigation of the potential for performance to effect change in the artist, audience and the work of art itself. In choosing to present her dances outside the traditional realm of the theater, Foshay invites a more intimate relationship between the performers and audience members, transforming the passive theatrical experience into activity as they migrate together around the gallery spaces. Imperfect Democracy, one of five dances on the program, is a quintet with original music composition by Nicholas Rich that explores issues of multiculturalism and race relations in 21st century America, questioning the power of dance to instigate personal reflection and its potential to reform public consciousness. Later, Foshay performs the solo The Way of Things in a sea of over 1000 origami paper cranes, caught in an undulating cycle of time, exhilaration and disintegration alongside composer/bassist Steven Landis. Finally, a cast of four skilled improvisational dancers team up with electric guitar phenom and composer Brian Koenig, exploring themes of relationship through a spectrum of ideas ranging from relative distance to the Tango. Throughout the performance, audience members are invited to roam the gallery and change locations with each dance.
