Sculpted Guardian Illumined, In Divine Company

Through interactive movement, sound and projection, we deconstruct iconic sculptures – Michelangelo’s David, Rodin’s Kiss and the Venus de Milo – and ask: Who are our guardians? How do we bring forth our othered identities? How can we practice radical love? What does all this mean for our communities NOW – globally and in Boston?

In Divine Company is a Boston-based activist dance company with a contemporary temple dance aesthetic. IDC fuses temple dance with urban and abstract dance theater; deconstructs and collages
industrial, found sound and spoken word with the powerful rhythmic traditions of the Asian Diaspora; and experiments with new media technologies to create an invigorating blend of physically intense and politically astute performance work.
