CLYMOVE Dance Company Premieres FEMMENISTO CHAPTER ONE At Triskelion Arts

CLYMOVE Dance will present an evening-length concert dance piece choreographed by Clymene Aldinger, former Principal Dancer with Elisa Monte Dance (2009-2017) and Monte's last protégé, on December 16th and 17th, 2021, 8 PM, at Triskelion Arts Theater, in Brooklyn, New York.

CLYMOVE is a message-driven dance company committed to virtuosic dance focused on authentic exploration. As a newly formed nonprofit organization, CLYMOVE will present Clymene Aldinger's first World Premiere FEMMENISTO Chapter One, on December 16th at 8 PM. There will be cocktails and conversation post-performance both evenings.

Femmenisto Chapter One is one woman's journey from single female to wife and mother, and her search for meaning in an ever-evolving world. From dark and intimate to silly, the show blends personal reflections and experiences with larger social movements. FEMMENISTO Chapter One is a 60 minute show, comprising eight dances, alternating solos, duets, and trios, performed by three distinct professional dancers whose divergent and contrasting life experiences celebrate our individual uniqueness and shared humanity. Unapologetic and intelligent, three women share the stage, moving in and out of each other's physical space, lifting, and supporting each other's bodies and emotions. Yet, they find themselves stepping on, over and crawling under one another, playful and vulnerable, shifting from dynamic support to aloneness.
