Kintsugi

The VanDenCross Dance Company and Fairfax Community Theater Company present Kintsugi: a multimedia art performance. Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with gold, silver, or other precious metals. Not only does this emphasize the cracks in the pottery, but it actually makes the pottery stronger.

Every single person is like a piece of pottery and the trauma we experience in our lives symbolize the cracks in our pottery. Overcoming the hardships we’ve suffered and the scars that remain beautifies and strengthens the soul. Embark on a journey of perseverance shown through the artistry of dance and voice.

Ericka Salter-Cross is a co-founder, choreographer, cast member and Artistic Director for the VanDenCross Dance Company. As a Vermont native, Ericka made her dance debut in 2006 when she found her passion for movement. She studied ballet, jazz, and lyrical under Sue Booth before furthering her education at what is now Northern Vermont University. After completing her degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus on dance, Ericka taught classes at several studios, including the Bird’s Nest and Synergy Center for the Performing Arts, performing with Ballet Vermont and choreographing for Miss America Vermont. In 2015, she co-founded the VanDenCross Dance Company, where artistic expression is encouraged, no experience needed. When she isn’t touching the lives of our youth at Champlain Islands Parent Child Center in South Hero, you can find her knitting, snuggling her cat and dogs or hanging our with friends and family.
