Oenone Hammersley’s recent collaboration with Jane Franklin Dance has produced an interesting and beautiful coalition.

Interpreting art into dance is an art form in itself and the juxtaposition of dancers moving with the flow and rhythm of paintings is quite something to behold. Jane Franklin Dance will be preforming this Sunday 20 February 2022 at 5pm at the Athenaeum to celebrate my exhibition of mixed media artworks.
Oenone Hammersley’s Interview with Jane Franklin is a preview to the ongoing exhibition at the Athenaeum, 201 Prince Street Alexandria VA. The gallery is open Thursday through Sunday, 12pm to 4pm. There is also a ‘Meet the Artist’ event on March 6 from 2pm to 4pm.

Jane Franklin Dance is surprisingly not the first dance group to dance to art. The Tate Gallery in London has a dance group that regularly dances to art in the museum, and Lil Buck performing with cellist Yo-Yo Ma, dancing in gardens and other one-of-a-kind performances make his work completely different. So, to commemorate the opening of a new exhibit in Paris, Lil Buck used his unique moves to silently glide, hop, and spin across the floor—combining art like we’ve never seen.
Watching Lil Buck dance to YoYo Mar is transformative. I hope everyone will enjoy Jane Franklin Dance on Sunday both in person and on YouTube.
