ArtsFest Showcase 2010 Features SHARP Dance Company

Rochester NH –
ARTSFEST SHOWCASE is a dynamic mix of Dance, Music, Comedy, Theatre and Art, and this year’s show won’t disappoint, bringing together home grown performing artists from NH and reaching out to our friends from the Mid-Atlantic States to share their talents with our great state.

May 8th’s “2010 Showcase” features SHARP DANCE COMPANY from Philadelphia – a modern thematic performance dance company. SHARP Dance Company brings to the stage modern thematic dance, and will be featuring two exquisite pieces – Blind Faith (part 3) and Woman’s Story (part 2). In “Blind Faith (part 3)” audiences will be inspired by the performance featuring a 34 foot long skirt designed by Brian Strachan revealing the strong helping the weak through trust and faith.

In woman’s story (part 2) “A Women’s Quartet” the performance reveals a woman’s ability to overcome personal and social obstacles. “Woman’s Story” empowers and celebrates the vitality, beauty, grace, and individuality of women and how they can and share these strengths with other women in their lives.

Formed in 2005 by Diane Sharp-Nachsin, SHARP Dance Company is quickly becoming recognized for their combination of inspired artistry, imagination capturing “stories of performance” and the discipline required of such performance mastery. They feature professionally trained dancers from both the Philadelphia area and some of the Mid-Atlantic States. Their mission is to translate raw human emotion utilizing contemporary movement to connect the audience through individual interpretation. SHARP is a modern dance company, and its theory of “Meaning behind Movement” is showed prominently throughout their work. SHARP feels that dance should be more than a performance; it should be an experience. We at ARTSFEST think you’ll agree your experience will be fantastic, and we are THRILLED to bring them to NH.
