Freudian Slips and Silent Screams

  • June 6, 2012 5:30 PM

Witness a living embodiment of the concepts behind portraiture and figurative art in a “happening” series of miniature dances and scenes designed to be performed in silence. CD/FW company members will explore the idea of the very act of creating a portrait or modeling for one. Drawing ideas from art history, photography, and personal histories, the dancers will bring their personal interpretations to this long-standing tradition of the “portrait” as a form of human record-keeping and storytelling through art. Audience members are welcome to come and go during the duration of the performance.

Contemporary Dance/Fort Worth and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth are celebrating modern dance and contemporary dance during the Modern Dance Festival. For more information visit

Admission is free.
