SOFT BLUE conjures a space where the fragile lines between truth and fantasy are blurred and broken. With each moment counted and accounted for, three women practice performances of togetherness, misremember choreographies, and re/present images of femininity. Dancing through SOFT BLUE reveals the construction and collapse of physical and psychological realities, illuminating cracks through which possibilities for magic emerge. SOFT BLUE is performed by Meghan Frederick, Carlye Eckert, and Elisa Davis and features an original score by Trevor Wilson.
SOFT BLUE was developed in residence at Denmark Arts Center (ME) and Barn Arts Collective (ME), as well through the M(Mix) Residency program at Marymount Manhattan College (NY). Work in progress versions of SOFT BLUE were performed at Denmark Arts Center, Open Performance at Eden's Expressway (NYC), Brew in Motion (NYC) and Barn Arts Collective. In conjunction with residency periods Meghan Frederick Practice/Project held a workshop for middle-school students on improvisation and choreography at the Pemetic Elementary School (ME) and taught open class through Moving Target Portland (ME). The full 39-minute work premiered as part of TAKE ROOT at Green Space in Long Island City NYC in early February 2017.
