*For Immediate Release :*

*Swiss choreographer Anne-Sophie Fenner* and the New York cast of *
flowingdancecompany**, *present the *World Premier* of *Passage Bleu*, an
evening length modern dance work. Poetic and powerful, the choreography
journeys among fractured selves to confront perception, relation, change and
an universal need to be seen. Held at the renowed Merce Cunningham Studio
from May 23 - 24 at 8pm, tickets are $20 General Admission/ $15 Student with
valid ID.

Woven together in a novel-like format, *Passage Bleu *consists of four
loosely connected chapters: Eclaircie, Inflorescence, Inside and Passage
Bleu, which gives the title. Anne-Sophie Fenner employs her choreography to
convey the universal message that we all have more than one voice inside -
and how a lifetime passes before full understanding is achieved. But most of
all, her dances are about the joy of life, the possibility of change at any
time, seeing ourselves in a greater picture of this world and the importance
of living in the moment.

*About flowingdancecompany/ Anne-Sophie Fenner (AD, Choreographer)*

*flowingdancecompany* is an independent contemporary dance company founded
by *Anne-Sophie Fenner *(Choreographer, Dancer) and *is based in Zurich,
Switzerland*. Ms. Fenner moved to New York City in September 2007 to pursue
her artistic work. She works with a steady cast of dancers, but also invites
new dancers and artists to collaborate with her on original projects.

The more recent repertory created for flowingdancecompany by Ms. Fenner in
Zurich continues to be performed by the Swiss company at theaters and in
festivals under the management of the company’s Rehearsal Director Erwin
Schumann and Tour Director Martina Kamm. In Zürich the company had been
receiving funding from major art foundations and therefore had been able to
secure professional work on all levels in Switzerland. The production of
Passage Bleu in New York has been made possible through private sponsoring

In New York City Anne-Sophie Fenner started working with a group of dancers
in August 2008, introducing her repertoire work and creating new work. Since
the inception of a New York City-based branch of her company she has shown
excerpts of work at Dumbo Dance Festival (September 2008) and Cool New York
Festival (January 2009). The upcoming evening-length show, *Passage
Bleu,*at the Cunningham Studio, May 23-24, includes one repertoire
piece and three
new works.

Stylistically, Ms. Fenner's work has been described as a mix between Modern
Dance and the more 'released' European Contemporary style. Ms. Fenner’s work
is truly dance at its fullest. Striving always to communicate, this is
choreography that does not shy away from an intellectual search and is
always grounded in humanity. flowingdancecompany is not afraid to meet an
audiences’ yearning for aesthetic beauty and emotional connection. What Ms.
Fenner is truly interested in is communicating, through the art of dance, to
the heart of each person in the audience.

Mission Statement*

"I am interested in finding a way how we can - through dance - open our
hearts, and go as far as to the bottom of our soul, where we find calmness,
against all odds and in the middle of this crazy, loud and fast world. I
believe that as long as we are truthful in our movement, the message we want
to express will always get across to the world.” -Anne-Sophie Fenner
