SOULMOVES was an outgrowth of my dancing abilities sans choreography. The mask came along with a life of its own. SOULMOVES is spontaneous and free-flowing, and expresses the mood of the moment. Because of its spontaneous nature, it can become an integral part of any program or collaborative performance.
The SOULMOVES Ensemble was born when other women saw how much fun I was having and wanted to join. Costumes are made from recycled clothing that is used as is or retailored. The dancers do all of the sewing including the headdresses.
SOULMOVES has performed at festivals, street celebrations, art galleries, and occasions and events of all kinds including Sarasota Film Festival, Festival Diapente, Fuzion Dance Artists, Theatre Odyssey, White on State, Arts Tonight, & Selby Library Crystal Ball.
Currently SOULMOVES is in hiatus with future plans to video performances, which will be downloaded YouTube. Links will appear on this page when the videos are up and running.
“Scylla Liscombe’s dancing is first and foremost spiritual: it follows her own predilections for what is beautiful and true, and they are considerable as anyone familiar with her life as a poet, artist, and dancer will attest. She is always creating, always feeling her way toward the center of the stream where everything happens if we just let it.”
Justin Spring/SOULSPEAK, Poet, Video Maker
“Scylla Liscombe’s Soulmoves impeccably expresses and embodies the mood of the moment. She becomes the physical expression of the poetry/music as she spontaneously moves into the fullness of expression in a fresh, innovative, and often provocative manner.”
Rev. Zan Benham, Act Your Way into Being
Thank you so much for allowing me to film you yesterday. Simple words cannot express what I witnessed. It was incredibly beautiful. You transport anyone around you to another plane of existence. It was difficult not to put the camera down and just revel in your dance.
Kayl Perks, Filmmaker
“Scylla not only provides a unique and artistic moment, but she approaches the event with a level of professionalism we all value.”
Larry Hamm, Theatre Odyssey
