Multimedia agency Ovations Productions launches May 2016 in the Fort Lauderdale area. With an affiliated network of producers and dance educators certified in several different techniques, the company specializes in dance and arts education, video, stage, and event production. Ovations has big plans to enrich the local arts community by creating performance, employment, and professional development opportunities for pre/professional artists and dancers, as well as providing scholarship and sponsorship programs so that students of low income families can receive affordable arts education. Ovations Productions goes live this month, both online with their new website, and on stage during Art Walk at FAT Village, where they will be curating a live dance exhibit. The exhibit, entitled “I’m fine, I Promise, The Check is in the Mail,” serves as both a celebration of the company’s launch and their introduction to the local community, and will feature live dancers, performance artists, and muralists, a DJ, photo and video installations, and a bar sponsored by Cocktails for Humanity.
Born from an interest in the role deception plays in human nature, I’m Fine, I Promise, The Check is in the Mail, is a performance that utilizes audience interaction to explore the concepts of truth, deception, vulnerability, and cognitive dissonance. The performance is designed to offer chances for participants to engage in conversation, voyeurism, and human physical contact that revolves around sharing truth versus maintaining deceptions. With the installation, Ovations Productions offers a show experience intended to get audience members critically thinking, and inspire them with new ideas, inspirations, and perspectives.
"There is something to be said about the fact that deception is rampant, and sometimes we tell the biggest lies to those we love most. We know we do it. We know others do it. Children, parents, teachers, politicians. Our intention is to leave participants and viewers introspective, in a place of taking ownership for their role in what is or what was," says Co- Founder and Artistic Director Christopher Caldwell.
The company says their mission is to build a growing global community, allowing them to nurture artists who are forging their own paths, and serve as a springboard for groundbreaking ideas, and a platform for creatives with a broad interest in using art and storytelling to affect change for future generations.
I’m Fine, I Promise, the Check is in the Mail will take place at General Provision in Fort Lauderdale’s FAT Village as a part of Art Walk.
