BCDF welcomes FreeFall Contemporary Dance Company from Bedford, NH, alongside their founder Heather Budinscak.
Founded in 2013, this fresh face companies mission is to enrich and engage the lives of others through modern dance; to energize the audience using musically driven, athletic movement that loves the floor, flies through the air and eats up all the space in between. FreeFall is made up of a handful of very talented yet completely diverse individuals. Each has a unique background that shapes the dancer they have become.
Loving the vivacity & energy in Boston, Budinscak knew she had to take her company to this city. She explains,
“It has a vibrant lifeblood that nurtures a growing community of dancers, especially, at this time, contemporary dancers. This will be FreeFall CDC’s debut performance in Boston and I am so excited to share our work there, alongside many talented fellow artists.”
You do not want to miss the company performing “Reckless Secrets” at the 12 pm Boston Showcase at BCDF. So, what exactly is this piece about?
Well, it stems from an old saying that everyone seems to know, “See not evil, Hear no eve, Say no evil,” & the iconic, humorous image of the 3 monies in their corresponding poses. There the similarities end as the piece delves into the darker side of secrets, gossip and the inevitable consequences of one’s actions. And get this, during the rehearsal process, Budinscak was constantly asking the dancers to keep their eyes covered. We can only imagine the collisions that happened there.
Heather continues to explain why this festival is a wonderful oppoutunity,
“As I continue to grow this new company I hope to share FreeFall’s energy and message with as many people and communities as possible. BCDF is a wonderful opportunity to begin this endeavor, and meet a multitude of talented of artists. A city full of talented minds and bodies is the perfect place to stumble and explore!”
