From Thursday's performance at Diverse Works:
"Amy Ell's Vault is an arial dance company that challenges the conventions of traditional dance with a gravity-defying movement aesthetic.
This semi-autobiographical performance consists of two passion-filled works – Torn and Continuum. Continuum is a re-staged work from 2004 that translates cycles of abuse. Audience members will witness windows into Ell’s past with iconic symbols including a tricycle, a bicycle, a scooter and thousands of marbles representative of the cyclic nature of this pervasive issue."
"Ell, along with other notable and award-winning dancers Dawn Dippel, Amy Cain, Matt Dippel, Joani Trevino, Lesley Vaughn, Richie Hubsher, Juan Jimenez, Lauren Cohen, Candace Rattliff and Alicia McGee, are members of Vault. Backstage performers (counterweight) include Kat Elliott, Joe Modlin and Nick Nesmith."
