RIP IN THE ATMOSPHERE Review

RIP IN THE ATMOSPHERE by Psophonia Dance Company as part of the 2011 Cincinnati Fringe Festival. You can read the show description here.

When I attend a dance performance, I look for energy, athleticism, beautiful lines and body positioning, and underlying it all, good technique.

At RIP IN THE ATMOSPHERE, in the first three of four pieces, the dancers spent the majority of the time rolling around on the floor. In the final work, the paper costumes kept the dancers on their feet, but limited the performers to arm movements, “dance” walks and limited-range kicks.

If the purpose of RIP IN THE ATMOSPHERE was to present a 50-minute dance show with limited actual dancing, they succeeded.

The final performances of RIP IN THE ATMOSPHERE at Hanke 1 is tonight, June 5 at 8:15pm.
