ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE


Spark Movement Collective is updating another classic for today’s times with 1984, a debut production based on the novel by George Orwell. Spark dancers bring this dystopian novel to life through movement choreographed by Artistic Director Chelsea Koenig and Assistant Artistic Director Matt Dittes in collaboration with the dancers. Featuring a transporting original score by composer Justin Reardon, 1984 explores the nature of truth and forbidden love in a world of fear. Custom projections enhance the world-building as protagonist Winston battles the psychological manipulation and physical threats of a totalitarian regime. Audiences will encounter a world of ideas as chilling as they are timely, urging us to question our relationship to language, power and control.

ABOUT SPARK MOVEMENT COLLECTIVE:

Since its inception in 2009, Spark Movement Collective ("Spark") has flourished into a force on the independent and contemporary dance scene with Artistic Director and Founder Chelsea Koenig at the helm.  Spark's mission is to create an accessible dance experience for audience members, dancers, and choreographers alike. Spark’s approach to family-friendly performances is unique and blends together classic stories, masterful dance, whimsical projections and narration, coupled with audience participation. Jessica Ruhlin of Bodies Never Lie writes, “It takes a surprising amount of knowledge and sophistication to craft work that both engages children and maintains a level of artistry.”
