Broken Rhythms | Into the WIRE

April 17, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 8:30 pm PDT

Broken Rhythms for the first time will be premiering their newest work online on April 17th at 8pm for everyone to enjoy together from their own homes.

This online version is being created in social isolation with Dyana Sonik-Henderson (Choreographer/Artistic Director of Broken Rhythms) dancing to all original music by Dan Godlovich of okpk with lighting design by Emma Dickerson and film production by Matthew Graham.

This show will be broadcasted on Facebook Live and and will be accessible to anyone with a facebook account. We are also looking into other platforms to stream the show for those without a facebook account and will keep you updated.

Into the WIRE (online) is a retelling of Broken Rhythms full show Into the WIRE whose rehearsals and subsequent shows were postponed then canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The original production was designed as a post -apocalyptic dance show that dealt with themes of survival, social isolation, social cohesion, technology, betrayal, and impact of environmental deterioration. These themes have become even more relevant as the weeks pass and Into the WIRE (online) will continue to explore these ideas as it transitions to a new artistic medium.

“When it is down to the wire what choices will we make…“-

Broken Rhythms would like to acknowledge and thank the the cast of artists and dancers who helped create the movement vocabulary that has inspired this online work. Carlene Forbes (developer and performer), Heidi Fox Lange (developer and performer), Allison Rhodes (developer and performer), Christina Plaschka (performer), Alexa Ste Marie (performer), Caleigh Hunter (developer) and Sara Peddle (developer). Dan Godlovich of okpk who was going to perform his music live during the show run, Emma Dickerson who is helping the production with lighting remotely and Lindsie Nicholas, who is the BR Dramaturge.

We would like to vocalize Broken Rhythms commitment to paying the artists for the work they have put into the upcoming projects even though they will not be able to perform it this time around.

As a result of Broken Rhythms show and annual June fundraiser cancelation we will be accepting donations during the online show . If you are in a financial situation to donate please do, and if you cannot afford to provide any money please don’t, we will continue to create and serve the community in anyway we can.

Into the Wire is proudly supported by the CRD, Victoria Arts Council and Raino Dance.
