BEACON – Contemporary Dance at The Palladium in Downtown St. Pete
Borrowing from the success of BEACON ’16, this season’s performance features not only international dancers and vibrant dance works, but also the premiere of Helen Hanson French’s dance film – a collaboration of 25+ artists from across an array of disciplines.
Following in the footsteps of last season’s wildly successful performance, BEACON ‘17 includes not only vibrant, lively dance works, but also the world premiere of a dance film created by world-renown dancer and BEACON Series co-founder/ choreographer/artist Helen Hansen French, in collaboration with more than 25 artists from across all disciplines. The performance will embody strength, joy, courage, tenacity, resilience and communal celebration. French and BEACON co-founding partner/choreographer/dancer Lauren Ree Slone will offer another evening of virtuosic, thought-provoking dance helping and reflecting the effort towards building a thriving, safe environment for everyone.
