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 an artist and self-realization as a person. Through performing solos, Derry hopes to inspire and empower other individuals to seek fearlessly the fulfillment of their own inner potentials.
On Saturday, October 26th and Sunday, October 27th at 8PM at KUNST-STOFF Arts in San Francisco, L i n s d a n s, will present POR·TRAI·TURE, an evening-length solo show comprising of new choreography by Derry and internationally acclaimed guest artists José Navas, Sidra Bell, Alex Ketley, and Iratxe Ansa as well as video design by Erin Malley. These choreographers who hail from Montréal, New York, San Francisco, and Barcelona reveal a multi-dimensional perspective on Derry through their custom-made solos.
Derry's teaching and performance schedule with L i n s d a n s, Yannis Adoniou's KUNST-STOFF Dance Company, and José Navas/Compagnie Flak. Coming up, the premiere of POR·TRAI·TURE on 26-27 October at KUNST-STOFF Arts in San Francisco and the KUNST-STOFF Dance Company's 15th Anniversary Retrospective Home Season on 8-10 November at ODC Theater in San Francisco.
