Absence/Presence Press and Success!

Thank you to everyone who came out for our Fringe show this weekend!  We had four well attended shows and received some amazing audience feedback:  “I … felt this conglomerate of anticipation, identification, anxiety and for lack of a better word, pride, in the ability of the body to communicate so much”-Hailey Higdon
“[Y]ou two REALLY glowed in this way that was beaming out across the entire room, I mean it was actually a glowing light that you two were emanating, I LOVED IT!”-CA Conrad

Also, we were written up in the Philadelphia Gay News this week:
“Another Philly Fringe performance with LGBT flavor is “Absence/Presence,” presented by Stone Depot Dance Lab and out choreographers Eleanor Goudie-Averill and Rain Ross. … Goudie-Averill, a transplant from Iowa by way of New York City, said she and Ross have a similar dance background and aesthetics but their performance styles vary greatly.
“We both have a pretty technical background,” she said. “We both were trained in classical ballet and modern styles like Martha Graham. Her narratives tend to be more overt. She has a piece about Dorothy Parker and it’s definitely about Dorothy Parker. It has a set and props and partnering that is more along a storyline. My piece is a little more subtle in the message. It’s mostly about how people present themselves to the world through their bodies, as in the way that we posture or gesture to show who we are and what we think and believe.”
