It was the springboard in which the company began. For its first performance in 2008, it was censored and almost banned due to the subject matter: sexual child abuse.

About the Performance: The solo work "Inner Soul" (2012) is based on Miss Andressen's breast cancer experience. During her treatment she felt ugly and hindered. She discovered that there is beauty in the struggle. The soloist dances inside of fabric netting and shows constricted movement and the escaping from it. It's a metaphor for bringing the beauty from within to the outside. The duet presented is called "Coeur de Verre" (2010) French for: Heart of Glass is a duet section from "Red Ribbons". It depicts the yearning and desire to connect and the fear of getting hurt. This piece delves into the literal and figurative meanings of trust via weight sharing; balancing; power moves and risky throws and catches.
