American Lullaby was born from the artist’s response to the current political and social climate that exists in our country. Through movement, projected image and live text, the performance draws parallels between times in history where the “other” was marginalized, where turmoil brought about change and how the past is reflected in our present. The audience will be immersed in a collage of images, topics and most especially rich movement that illuminates our heritage of diversity and our connection to one another.
IMPACT Dance Company is a contemporary modern dance company whose mission is to create evening-length dance theatre performances and workshops that speak to issues in our everyday lives. Formed in 1995 by Artistic Director Judy Bejarano, IMPACT has become a prominent performance group in Colorado. The company is known for its innovative dance theatre productions which combine organic movement with original text and multimedia elements to create work that has a strong sense of truth, intimacy and connection. IMPACT is committed to redefining how we interact with our audiences and frequently performs in nontraditional spaces. You will find us in museums, store fronts, art galleries and warehouses as well as the traditional theater. Recent events have included two premieres commissioned by the Museum of Art Fort Collins for the exhibits of Frida Kahlo and Salvador Dalí. Bejarano’s work has been commissioned and performed throughout the region and has been described as “…existing in the poignant space where comedy and tragedy intersect.”
