We returned to the second part of Awakening with the vignette “Crossing,” performed by guest company LucidBeings Dance. Six women dressed in grey and navy athleisure wear lithely danced around the stage, as sounds of a cityscape played. Slowly, the sounds turned to those of a storm, and the dancers were blown about, buffeted by winds. They collectively breathed, then broke apart into pairs, clutching one another forlornly.

The program opened with Permeating Presence, a quartet by Maryland-based LucidBeings Dance choreographed by Franki Graham and Jeanna Riscigno. The movement comes from the inside out, and is affected by gravitational pull, variable balances, and other outside forces. The words that come to mind in describing this dance are organic and organism

Permeating Presence was reviewed on the Charm City Dance Blog!

Permeating Presence is a gorgeous piece of choreography that had my eyes shooting from one dancer to the next throughout the performance. This piece was filled with surprise moments and many overlapping segments. I found myself widening my eyes and saying “wow” when I saw this performed for the first time at the Baltimore Dance Invitational. I felt the need to see this piece a second time to really wrap my head around what was happening and not get caught up in the consistent surprise moments and beauty. This piece is definitely one I could watch over and over again and still find something new and wonderful about it each time I view it.
