“Trapped” by Tatiana Desardouin
Bridge Street Theatre Dance Residency presents “Trapped” by Passion Fruit Dance Company’s Tatiana Desardouin.
“Trapped”, dedicated to women, serves as an invitation to unfold, release and to remove mental blocks. The work is a testimony from women of different backgrounds and stories, willing to reveal their blocks, their pain and ways to find their joy, with the hope of bringing solutions, to inspire anyone with simple and personal solutions that each woman on stage have found for themselves in their journey to unlock whatever they need to unlock.
Passion Fruit Dance Company is a New York based street/club dance theater and educational company, founded, directed and choreographed by Tatiana Desardouin with core members Mai Lê Hô and Lauriane Ogay to promote the authenticity of street and clubbing dance styles, therefore celebrating black culture and their contribution to the society, highlighting and exploring different social issues throughout their Desardouin pieces. Using the prism of Hip-Hop and House cultures and through different socially engaged art projects, the company provides tools for communities and generations in their healing process, or simply to those in search of a release outlet and confidence building environment, by using “Passion Fruit Seeds”- a teaching program, designed for that purpose and a multi-sensory experience within a cultural party called “Les 5 Sens”. The company has performed at The Apollo Theater, Summerstage, Jacob’s Pillow, the New Victory Theater, BAAD!Theater, Harlem Stage, selected by Pepatián for “Dance Your Future: Artist & mentor collaboration residency”, LOHH, Joe’s Pub, 92Y, Dance Place and abroad ( Canada ( MTL) at the M.A.I. for the 100LUX festival and Switzerland (Neuchâtel) at the Outside Festival) etc. They also co-choreographed and are featured in two commercials for Credo Beauty.
