L i n s d a n s- the platform for Lindsey Renee Derry’s solo work both choreographed by herself and guest artists- was launched in January 2012. Having been always fascinated with the idea of discovering her artistic and physical potential through the self-discipline of solo work, embarking on this path, for her, seemed natural and even necessary to her maturation as a self-realized person and artist. Through performing solos, Derry hopes to inspire and empower other individuals to seek fearlessly the fulfillment of their own inner potentials.

Interested in exploring not only her choreography but also the micro-realms of several choreographers in one evening, Lindsey Renee Derry approached some of the contemporary dance scene’s most compelling and innovative choreographers with her idea. From this curiosity and inquiry, POR·TRAI·TURE came to be. In the hour that Derry journeys through a shifting landscape of complex movement languages and unpredictable electronic music, a collection of moving portraits emerge. In them, a multi-faceted artist is revealed. Reaching many energetic and emotional extremes, from the cool and meditative to the fiery and explosive, Derry fearlessly exhibits her many sides.

Coming up... In April, Derry will perform locally at ODC Theater in San Francisco with recently joined Hope Mohr Dance, celebrating their seventh home season. Later that month, STRANDEDartists will perform a recently commissioned and created work by Derry as part of their AMPLiFIED home season in Sacramento. Beginning in May, Derry will have the exciting opportunity to participate in three consecutive residencies in Greece where she will be immersed in researching new solo material, leading workshops, and performing POR·TRAI·TURE, her recently constructed solo show. In July, Derry will continue over to Germany to perform POR·TRAI·TURE at festival Stoffwechsel-Metabolism in Berlin's premier experimental dance venue Dock11.
