SHORT REVIEW: Why Dance Matters

IVIR Dance Company kicks off two weeks of a Spoleto-like arts festival of music, theater, and dance.

IVIR Dance Company brought Spoleto-like performance to Cape Charles August 3.

Dance transcends language barriers. Last Saturday, eight Italian dancers from the IVIR Danza company kicked off the Harbor for the Arts 2013 in a sparsely attended world class performance at the Palace Theatre in Cape Charles.

The superb piece “Today is Already Tomorrow” was choreographed by Irma Cardano, accompanied by a mixture of classical, techno, and popular music. The elegant, energetic and lyrical movements by the young dancers managed to convey their interpretations of that existential question “What is the meaning of life?”.

Kudos to Clelia Sheppard for spearheading the Harbor for the Arts. In Europe, these types of summer art festivals are very popular and underwritten by both the government and commercial sponsors. Attending the Arts festival in Avignon, France, or Impulstanz in Vienna, Austria, are worthwhile endeavors, but let us not forget we can also enjoy the arts in our own backyard. [Read more…]
