Into the light - Collaboration fuses dance with projections, music, and more in a multimedia experience

....
Artists from multiple disciplines ... are weaving their crafts into the performance piece “Fuse,” one of two works that Kinodance will premiere this weekend in a program presented by CRASHarts.

Kinodance shares the concert with Lorraine Chapman The Company. While both groups are rooted in postmodern dance ... their styles are very different, suggesting the making of an aesthetically stimulating evening. While Kinodance is truly a multimedia ensemble, Chapman focuses on long, driving dance phrases punctuated by surprising movements that suggest the strangest of creatures.

Senses sent reeling and feeling
CRASHArts’ juxtaposition of the clanging multi-sensory collaborations of Kinodance with the laugh-while-you-cry musical compositions of Lorraine Chapman jangles like a sock to the jaw.

The two groups hail from different aesthetic planets, despite their both being Boston-based, and even an intermission between the acts isn’t enough to smooth the passage. But patience - along with ultra-concentration - has its rewards .... Each contribution has the power to rock a bit of your world.

Fusion forms- Lorraine Chapman, Kinodance, Black Grace

....Lorraine Chapman’s Here to There, sharing a program with Kinodance at the ICA (sponsored by CRASHarts), took an affectionate look at some pop-culture clichés, with sideways pokes at America the Brave. Chapman invited Marcus Schulkind and David Parker to share choreographic responsibilities with her. It was Parker’s campy sensibility that prevailed in the piece, but Schulkind’s thoughtfulness and Chapman’s physical nerve made for a seamless mix.

Netherlands troupe finds new energy in old pieces
.... “Sporen (Traces)” - the concert-length dance that the Netherlands-based Leine & Roebana performed this past weekend at the Institute of Contemporary Art - suffers not from a surfeit of unrelated material, but rather from an occasionally benumbing lack of movement variety. Fortunately, much of that movement is striking, and the seven hard-working dancers are beautiful performers, a pleasure to watch.

Drama manqué - Leine & Roebana at the ICA ...

Sporen, by the Dutch company Leine & Roebana, had two false beginnings before settling down to an hour of movement exploration. ... Leine & Roebana pushes the body to drastic extremes. The risk is all physical. Emotional implications stay safely under the control of the individual dancers, with sound and lighting effects spinning theatrical shocks and climaxes around them.
