about.

Project Flux fosters an environment where professionals and students can work together, without hierarchy, to create experiences. It takes the time to transform non traditional spaces into immersive environments that break the fourth wall between performer and audience member. 

 

Since the inception in 2013, Project Flux has created over 30 professional works and collaborated with approximately 20 different organizations including the Museum of Broken Relationships (Croatia), Ballet Idaho, Boise State University, the College of Southern Idaho, Idaho State Correctional Center, MING Studios, JUMP Boise, SALT Dance (SLC), Treefort Music Fest, 208 Ensemble, and WHYTEBERG LA.

 

Project Flux is committed to community engagement through project collaboration and weekly community classes.

Lydia Sakolsky-Basquill, Artistic Director

Studying dance both nationally and internationally from a young age, Lydia graduated with an AA in Dance Performance at New World School of the Arts (Miami, FL) training in R.A.D, Balanchine, Graham, Horton, and Limón techniques where she performed works by Micheal Utoff and Freddick Bratcher.  She went on to pursue her BFA at Arizona State University focusing on the works of José Limón, under the direction of Nina Watt, dancing soloist roles in Missa Brevis, Mazurkas, and Dances for Isadora. Furthering her studies, Lydia joined the San Francisco Conservatory of Dance under the direction of Summer Lee Rhatigan where she danced in the reconstructions of Robert Moses’ The Supplicant, Netherlands Dance Theatre’s Fallen Angels, along with contemporary works by Alex Ketley, Christian Burns, and former Batsheva Dancer Bobbi Jene Smith.  Since returning to Boise in 2011, Lydia founded Project Flux Dance - a nonprofit Boise-based dance company. She has choreographed over 30 professional works and collaborated with approximately 20 different organizations. Her choreography has received recognition and numerous awards nationwide. She continues to teach ballet, contemporary, jazz, and improvisation throughout the Treasure Valley.
