    Second Glance Dance Performance @ Northern Virginia Fine Arts Association @ the Athenaeum

    -A performance by Jane Franklin Dance in cooperation with Fine Art Photographer Fax Ayers-

    “Second Glance” heightens the perception of photography with movement and sound that leads to a greater understanding of both visual art and dance. Artist Fax Ayers combines the aesthetics of photography and painting where still lifes are compiled by merging objects to inspire a comic sensibility and a delicate balance of opposition. Fax’s words about process and relationships are used to provide a backbone to inspire dance and movement in “Second Glance.”

    Find the surreal in the mundane, and discover moments that draw a Second Glance performed by Jane Franklin Dance to music by Handel and Bach.

    Also on the program are excerpts from Jane Franklin’s “EyeSoar” a performance that emphasizes the landscape and the people of Old Town Alexandria near The Athenaeum and West End Alexandria, a location where the choreographer resides.
