Admission (\əd-ˈmi-shən, ad-\) – the act of admitting or allowing something; a statement or action by which someone admits a weakness or fault; the right or permission to enter a place. This is the Merriam-Webster definition of admission. Elisa-Marie Alaio’s newest dance show Admission portrays these meanings, and so much more.
Admission is an energetic dance production that explores the various facets of womanhood. Interpreting aspects
ranging from the mysteriousness to the emotional to the chaotic ‘order’ that at times permeates our lives, along with the need to both challenge and support one another, Elisa-Marie brings a depth of thoughtful representation to the myriads of women. Only when we admit our flaws and weaknesses to ourselves, are we truly able to accept the helping hand of others, to allow others to support us through our ups and downs. Through dance, Admission demonstrates the intense power of lifting each other up.
Admission is a celebration of the incredibly strong spirit of women. Every woman is unique and every woman has her own story. On our stage, you will see six unique women, each with their own story. Only after they have embraced their weaknesses and admitted their need for support from their sisterhood, do they truly achieve their final admission – the right to enter a place, and that place is one of empowerment. Together, standing strong, these 6 woman represent the power of admission. Together they embody empowerment; together they represent their own unique selves. And to truly have one, you must have the other.
