About blackandblue dance projects
Love, guts, brain and brawn are the stuffs of blackandblue dance projects. Born out of Artistic Director Sasha Ivanochko’s insistence on getting to the heart of the matter, the work is body centric, core physical and candid. Working from the belief that the body’s range of physical coordination has unlimited potential, her artistic discourse is informed by rigorous, intellectual and playful in-studio investigation. Marked by an unusual sense of beauty and an intuitive musicality, Ivanochko’s singular physical language explores and reveals the metaphoric implications of movement. The art of blackandblue, and the artist, are driven by a great longing, a love of the under-dog, and a fierce sense of inner flight.
