    Secrets & Motion

     This November, witness Luminarium Dance Company’s feature production, as it debuts downtown. Secrets & Motion combines dance, light, and text to create a performance riddled with contemplative thought and a little humor. After a sold-out preview performance at the Armory (Somerville), one critic described the production as “a powerful play on poetry in motion and the mysteries hidden in the light and dark.” Secrets & Motion is an evening of several new works by Luminarium Artistic Directors Merli V. Guerra and Kimberleigh A. Holman, woven into one production inspired by the secrets we keep, share, and dismantle. Among the highlights of Secrets & Motion is a new dance-on-camera film by Guerra and group work by Holman. Played in reverse, Guerra's film The One I Keep questions the secrets we withhold versus the multitude we share, told through the eyes of a solo performer caught in the turbulence of thousands of flying paper notes. Adding levity to the production, Holman will present a dark-but-comedic trio based on the Benjamin Franklin quote “three can keep a secret if two of them are dead,” all set to a Mozart piano sonata. From solo studies to large group movement, each piece of choreography finds inspiration in historical or contemporary secrets, hidden text, cultural phenomena, or personal experience.
