By Julye Huggins
Lavish's Affogato Teaser

Currently running at the Montréal Fringe, June 10th through 18th, Lavish Dance Company presents Affogato, the belly dance company’s second full-length show following their 2010 success Step at the Toronto Fringe Festival. The show was recently seen in Toronto June 3rd and 4th, and will be off to the Wakefield Piggyback Festival June 25th and 26th.This work by Artistic Director Audra Simmons is said to explore themes of isolation, immersion and recovery. According to the company’s website, the all-female cast of edgy, tattooed and pierced dancers weave “intricate movements and sweeping formations into otherworldly choreography that feels almost aquatic and seems to breathe as it alters and morphs.” Dancers include Simmons, Danielle Davies, Heather Labonté, Maddie Bolek, Monika Field and Victoria Buston.
