Clairobscur Dance Company was founded by Artistic Director and resident choreographer, Laurie Sefton.  Its name is the French translation of chiaroscuro, a 17th century painterly term which means an effect of contrasted light and shadow created by light falling unevenly an object.  Movement is often obvious, (the light) but also contains a subtext (the shadow), which must be sought out and discerned by both the creator of movement and its spectator.
