Mission Statement

Clairobscur Dance Company presents dance as Art, communicating viscerally, visually and intellectually and confronts it's audience demanding they step outside of themselves, make a commitment to what they are viewing, to be a participant not just a spectator. Relationships of the individual are explored in the context of the rules, policies and movess that govern society. Dances are created in which the body is the idea - the whold body: face, limbs, torso, emotions, organs and soul.

Description

Clairobscur Dance Company, was founded by Artistic Director and resident choreographer Laurie Sefton. It's name is the French translation of chiaroscura, a 17th centruy painterly term which means an effect of contrasting light and shadow created by light falling unevenly on an object. Movemement is often obvious, (the light) but also contains a subtext (the shadow), which must be sought out and discerned by both the creator of movemebt and it's spectator.
