The company will also officially reveal its new branding and revamped digital presence. A celebrity emcee will host the event and a reception will follow the evening’s performances.

Three of the five works presented are choreographed by Susan Vishmid, Creative Director of Freaks With Lines. Sadie Black, co-choreographer, producer and dancer choreographed the fourth work being presented and both, Vishmid and Black co-choreographed the award winning film Nilus Cogus, which will be presented as a live performance at the gala.

Vishmid and Black, two of Los Angeles’s most ambitious freelance ballerinas buzz with anticipation at announcing the launch of their long awaited podcast at the gala called Trina Talk. Trina Talk is “an opportunity to share our personal experiences in a 20-minute digestible and lighthearted format with the dance community,” says Vishmid. “ Documenting our rehearsal processes over the past few years revealed that we are more than performers,” continues Vishmid, “We are entertainers.”

“Trina Talk serves as a time capsule of our experience as freelance artists navigating through the unique landscape of ballet in Los Angeles,” says Black. In the spirit of paying it forward, “We are thrilled to share what we have lived and learned to deepen the love for and understanding of a ballet career,” reflects Black.

Dancers are Freaks who live, eat and breathe to create Lines and ultimately scrutinize those creations. Dance is a self-serving art form. Freaks With Lines are the creators and the consumers of their own art.

Vishmid began her early training at Westside Ballet and through scholarships continued training at the Pacific Northwest Ballet School, San Francisco Ballet School and The Rock School. Vishmid performed with the Pennsylvania Ballet, Santa Fe Opera, San Diego Opera, Chicago Festival Ballet, Napoles Ballet Theater, California Contemporary Ballet, City of Angels Ballet, California Riverside Ballet, Key West Ballet, Coast City Ballet and San Gorgonio Ballet.
