“Dance is the hidden language of the soul.” -- Martha Graham

DOUBLE VISION (Sean Clute, Pauline Jennings and Jennifer Mellor) is forming a collaborative team with duet partners Ellen Smith Ahern & Lida Winfield to present a an evening salon of dance and performance at the Contemporary Dance and Fitness Studio in Vermont's Capitol City! DOUBLE VISION will present ShiftSCAPE, a dance solo that was created at CDFS and recently premiered in the WAVE RISING SERIES, in Brooklyn, NY.  Duet partners Ellen Smith Ahern and Lida Winfield will present new as well as finished work. The salon will also include an informal Q&A with the artists. This performance is part of the collaborative team's winter tour of Montreal (Eastern Bloc) and Vermont (Goddard College Hay Barn and CDFS).

DOUBLE VISION creates experimental performances for dance, music, and video. Led by Sean Clute and Pauline Jennings, the company has distinguished itself nationally and internationally. DOUBLE VISION has presented work at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Macworld Artists Salons, and the Merce Cunningham Studio. This past fall, Clute and Jennings presented their work at ISEA2012 (Albuquerque), DUMBO Dance Festival (NYC) and the Wave Rising Sereis (NYC).

Ellen Smith Ahern & Lida Winfield have been working as collaborative artists since 2010. We love dances that are funny, provocative, and physically honest. We challenge ourselves and our audiences to participate in dance as an open dialogue. Our dances tell stories, ask questions, explore limits, and celebrate beauty in what is awkward, raw, and vulnerable. We are inspired by the human capacity to cope, to imagine, to transform. lidawinfield.com | ellensmithahern.com

“Diptera, Hymenoptera, Coleoptera and new media artists undergoing the pupa stage.” -- Unknown

Intermedia performance group DOUBLE VISION will create an interactive installation at Eastern Bloc entitled Luna Eclose. As the audience enters the installation, they will find themselves moving through a maze of hanging scrim, multi-source video projection and sound. Willingly, or not, their own bodies become participants as light and shadows create overlays echoed throughout the space. Sharing the space with the audience are three dancers. The audience is invited to place instructive signs upon the dancers, dictating their movements. Through this simple interaction, the audience plays an active role in directing the course of the event.

Luna Eclose will feature artists from across the United States including video by Jessica Gomula, sound by Sean Clute, choreography and performance by Pauline Jennings, Jennifer Mellor, Ellen Smith Ahern and Lida Winfield.
