A quick wink to LASHBASH
With Lashbash just around the corner we at Broken Rhythms wanted to give you some more information about the company and answer the question…Why Lashes?
Lashbash is the name chosen for our fundraisers, as it is a look back at Broken Rhythms before the company could afford elaborate props and costumes. The Eyelashes were added last minute to Broken Rhythms’ first work “Spark” as a way of uniting the dancers on stage.
In 2012 the artistic director of Broken Rhythms (Dyana Sonik-Henderson) being new in her role accidentally had her dancers show up in full costume with lashes at a casual Victoria Fringe meet and greet event. Fringe artists commented on the genius of the marketing power of the lashes. The audience might have not remembered the show name, but when buying tickets they asked for “the show with the crazy lashes”.
Though Broken Rhythms has moved away from having lashes included in every project, we have developed a fondness for what they represent for the company. So every year we give thanks to Lashes that allowed audiences to find us during Fringe and it is a reminder of how Broken Rhythms has developed.
