Lucia August returns to the Festival Fringe for the third time to debut "Formerly Hermit", her fourteenth World Premiere in twelve years. She earned four-star reviews for standingOUTstanding, her one-woman show at the 2014 Edinburgh, Scotland Fringe Festival, http://bit.ly/2lRFsOd Her performance video was selected for inclusion in the Fringe Performance Archives videos, housed at the National Library of Scotland. Choreographer and performer Lucia August’s 2022 SPEAKING FROM THE BODY variety show contains old favourites and a new work. It features intimate sharing in movement and spoken word. Four dance stories speak of what happens when previously non-convergent lives merge into one, a lost love reappearing in a new form, a man with a secret that everyone knows but pretends not to and how going inward creates new energy for moving forward.
“Over the years, I have proven that dancers shouldn’t be limited by artificial limits imposed on them by others,” said Lucia August. “While I am performing on stage, I encourage the audience to take seriously a dance artist of age and size. As I have broken free from these limiting beliefs, I serve as a true inspiration to others and empower them to continue making art for as long as they want. My work motivates others to live their dreams”.
