Moving Ethos Dance Company presents the world premiere of girlwoman, an intimate portrayal of the glamorous and messy nature of being a woman. Follow three women as they navigate the demands of the world with an imperfect grace that is relatable and refreshing. Their strength is met with fragility as they transparently share their stories. In her characteristically bold voice, Artistic Director, Leah Verier-Dunn, leads the audience through a web of imagery that pulls at heart strings one moment and evokes laughter the next. girlwoman is a telling tale that challenges us all to consider the complexities of the female experience.
Moving Ethos strives to rebuild connections to ourselves and the community through movement. Their programs often defy conventional performance categories and their latest piece, girlwoman, continues this tradition by transcending both dance and theater. girlwoman has layers of subtext and meaning that is forcefully personal and emotionally raw revealing the performers ‘and audiences’ truth and vulnerability.
Continuing a commitment to provide a platform and support for local contemporary artists, The Ringling selected Moving Ethos for the inaugural Spotlight Florida creative/performance residency. Beginning in October, 2018, Moving Ethos spent their 6-month residency creating girlwoman in the new Charlotte and Charles Perret Family Performance Studio at The Ringling.
