Voci Dance

Voci Dance is known for their mystical and surreal dances often times performed gorilla style in unexpected urban settings. Genevieve Bernard was one of the founding members of Voci dance, there were five back in the day, Adrienne Nichols got the group together. At the Orlando International Fringe Festival, the dancers performed with camping head lamps. The performance was staged next to the Orlando Museum of Art and the dancers interacted with the huge blue steel sculpture that is next to the museum on the green lawn of fabulousness. It was just past dusk and the dancers resembled dwarfs returning from the mines. Well, let me restate that, the dancers didn't look like dwarfs, they were sleek and limber, OK I'll stop digging. An audience of perhaps fifty people gathered in the darkness around the dancers. This was one of those situations in which I couldn’t see my sketch as I worked on it in the dark. Sometimes that can be a blessing when the sketch finally sees light.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
