Female-led Program Opens the 2023 Season Celebrating Three Innovative Female Choreographers 

| March 7, 2023 | 0 Comments

The Rosin Box Project (TRBP), San Diego’s premier contemporary ballet company, is opening their 2023 season with “Empower,” a trailblazing female-led program coinciding with Women’s History Month featuring three new works choreographed by Resident Artists Lauren Flower, Bethany Green and Carly Topazio.  

The program will be presented at The Light Box Theater in Liberty Station; performances are 7:30 p.m., Thursday, March 23 through Saturday, March 25. Receptions will follow the March 23 and 24 performances, giving attendees the opportunity to meet and mingle with the company artists, and an Artist Talk-Back (Q&A) will follow the March 25 performance, allowing the choreographers to speak about their work in more detail. In addition, a special immersive-performance-style event featuring Bethany Green’s new work will be presented at 7:30 p.m., Monday, March 27. There will also be a virtual stream of the program at 7 p.m., Saturday, March 25.

TRBP thrives on expanding the definition of what dance is—who it’s made for and by—while presenting world-class dancers and choreography in an unfiltered and authentic space. “Empower” spotlights female choreographers that are evolving the art form with their own unique artistic voices. 

Bethany Green constantly blurs boundaries between dance and theater in dramatically driven works that are embedded in the exploration of the human experience. As a choreographer, she creates atmospheric, cinematic works that offer performers a space to emphasize the journey of real –life situations, emotions and encounters.

Lauren Flower first created on TRBP in 2021 as a guest choreographer premiering her work, Seen, for film and stage as a part of TRBP’s 2021 August Series. Since then, Flower became a resident artist with TRBP in 2022, and now will be presenting her second commission for the company. Flower describes her choreography as a need to create and express intimate and often overlooked personal and emotional experiences. As a pioneer and advocate for exploring movement and interactions within choreography beyond the classically accepted gender binary, Flower’s work is anything but conventional, brimming with an ever-needed refreshing take on human connection. 

Artistic Director and Resident Artist, Carly Topazio, can best be described as an abstract storyteller always in pursuit of a sincere and human expression. Her detailed and often athletically charged choreographic language is informed by the world around her which allows her to draw inspiration from a myriad of sources including personal conversations and experiences.
