Looking for a unique way to spend Valentine’s Day with your significant other? Motionhouse, a dance company hailing from the United Kingdom, will perform its newest program, “Scattered,” tonight at Jorgensen.
The company’s co-founder and artistic director, Kevin Finnan, called their show a “dance-film-spectacle” in a Jorgensen press release. The show should hold incredible sights, “combining film, original music and aerial movement to explore our everyday, and sometimes exotic, relationship with water,” according to the press release.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary, Motionhouse will use a massive wall resembling a half-pipe to evoke water’s essential place in human life and its many powerful forms, from thunderstorm to waterfalls. Featuring beautiful imagery and dynamic motion, the show is set to dazzle.
Of special note are the show’s dancers. They are seven experts who will travel up and down the wall and stage, seemingly defying gravity, and launch themselves through the air to capture the show’s powerful emotions.
After the program, the artists will hold a question-and-answer session with audience members. This is sure to reveal some of the secrets of their logic-defying movements.
Motionhouse: “Scattered” will begin at 7:30 p.m. at Jorgensen on Feb. 14. UConn students can get in for $10 with a valid ID; regular admittance prices range from $31 for balcony seats to $36 for the floor.
