LucidBeings Dance premiers an original production, The Edge Effect, featuring choreography by Franki Graham and Jeanna Riscigno and sound score by composer Timothy Nohe. Inspired by the extraordinary biome created at the merging of two ecosystems, the dancers explore the potential for cooperation, support and sustainability possible when diverse communities are brought together as one. Discover the beauty that is possible at their intersection: Dive the ocean, play in the grasses of the prairie, experience the vastness of the tundra and swing through the branches of the rainforest with LucidBeings in this one-night only performance.

LucidBeings Dance is a local contemporary dance company founded in 2017 under the direction of artists Franki Graham and Jeanna Riscigno. Described as “straddling the line between sensible and visceral” (BMore Art, 2018) the company uses organic movement and intricate partnering to make work that is catalyst for compassion, wonder, unity and change. The company has been presented as a part of multiple programs within the past two years, most notable including the Maryland Choreographers’ Showcase (2018), the Baltimore Dance Invitational (2018 and 2019), VelocityDC Dance Festival (2017) and the Richmond Dance Festival (2017 and 2018).
