So, what will the company be presenting at our 7:30 pm National Showcase? Well, Sefton’s piece “More, Please” brings to life the constant inundation that women often experience in their struggle to have it all- relationships, work, art, sex, a full and fulfilling life. The choreographer explains,

“More Please” delves into our desire to do and be everything at once, to ourselves, and to others. Life is a constant juggle full of balance and shifting relationships, values and priorities- constant questioning and pushing. Time moves so quickly and as a woman in today’s society expectations are high. We must fulfill many roles and strive to have everything at once, to achieve our personal and professional goals and often be relied upon to be the emotional rock for many others. What about our desires, needs, disappointments?

So, the question is why “Clairobscur?” Well, its name is the French translation of chiaroscuro, a 17th century painterly term which means an effect of contrasted light and shadow created by light falling unevenly an object. How intriguing is that?
