Recent Project 'SOFT BLUE' in the news-
Soft Blue explores modern day womanhood through both a sensitive and tenacious lens. Frederick, an astute dance maker, creates a work pregnant with vividly stirring imagery... moments of both absurdity and beauty. In a culture where the state of women’s bodies is under constant scrutiny and attack, three women in Queens allow themselves to be vulnerable and free. It’s an empowering sight.
