BodyLENScape

    In one of the most exciting shows to hit UCSD this year, BodyLENScape will feature two of San Diego’s best and most innovative choreographers, Patricia Rincon and Jean Isaacs. They have toured the United States, Mexico and Europe, but both are based in San Diego and will perform at Mandeville Auditorium Feb. 20.

    Rincon and Isaacs have put together a tantalizing dance show with live music and video. BodyLENScape will feature the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Choir and will portray a landscape of thought-provoking images through dance and music. The name BodyLENScape references the dancers’ bodies, the multimedia aspects of the performance and the set design all at once.

    The event is actually two performances, one from each choreographer. Rincon is a professor at UCSD in the theatre and dance department, where she has trained dancers for the past 25 years. Rincon has received numerous awards, such as the San Diego Area Dance Alliance’s “Tommy Award of Distinction” and the North County Latino Association’s “Latina of the Year for Arts and Culture” award. Her part of the performance will explore society and the ways in which our fast-paced world moves.

    Isaacs was inspired by photographer Art Myers’ images of orphans with AIDS in sub-Sahara Africa, and will feature the photos in her performance. Isaacs was artistic director for San Diego’s “3’s Company” for nearly 20 years and is now the artistic director for San Diego Dance Theater. She was a National Endowment for the Arts/Local Dance Fellowship recipient and a San Diego Area Dance Alliance Tommy Award recipient for community service. Isaacs is also a professor at UCSD in the theater and dance department and has received the “Distinguished Teaching Award.”

    With two such notable choreographers and live music during the performance, this beautiful event will open your eyes to the places where society and dance intersect. This is a one-night-only performance and is not scheduled anywhere else in San Diego, so be sure not to miss it.
