MM2 to appear at INHALE Performance Series

MM2 Modern Dance Company will be performing at the upcoming INHALE Performance Series on Friday, October 8, 2010 at 7:30PM at CHI Movement Arts Center.

Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers’ INhale Performance Series is a community initiative to help local and emerging movement artists perform their work. Selected artists, who are chosen via an application process, receive free performance space, technical assistance and audience feedback.

MM2 will feature work by Jenna Faye Eugenides for this performance. In her piece entitled, Re-Emergence, she addresses the issue of Fair Trade, a market-based approach that aims to help producers in developing countries obtain better trading conditions and promote sustainability.

The work was premiered at the 2010 Philadelphia Live Arts Festival and Philly Fringe and features an original score by Daniel Ison.

Jenna explains, “In Re-Emergence, the choreography shows three dancers continuously taking from the other two dancers, the way consumers are continuously taking from hard working individuals in other places. The audiences should notice the split between the two groups, and the way the actions of each group effects the other. At the end of the piece, the three takers realize what they are doing and start to give back, aka buy Fair Trade. They reunite with the two dancers that they have been taking from, and the reconciliation brings all the dancers together. I want the piece to give the audience an inside look at something real and meaningful. It’s about coming together and improving the lives of others by changing the way we live ours.”

Choreographer attempts to raise awareness about Fair Trade for the Philly Fringe.

Fair trade is an organized social movement and market-based approach that aims to help producers in developing countries obtain better trading conditions and promote sustainability. The movement advocates the payment of a higher price to producers as well as social and environmental standards. For Jenna Faye Eugenides, with the raising of her own awareness, she decided to address the issue of Fair Trade, through the medium she knows best, dance. Her new dance work, Re-Emergence, will be presented on Saturday, September 11th at the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival and Philly Fringe in conjunction with MM2 Modern Dance’s performance at the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center in Drexel Hill, PA.
