“Freak” is commonly used to refer to a person with something strikingly unusual about their appearance or physical ability.
Freaks With Lines (FWL) is a Los Angeles based dance project created by Susan Vishmid that serves as a platform to showcase both independent and collaborative works between professional dancers and other creatives in various disciplines. Freaks With Lines’ mission is to generate moments of supreme beauty and intrigue in a neoclassical style.
Dancers strive to achieve the most perfect line possible with their bodies because the human body is their sole vehicle for expression. The story, no matter how abstract, can always be found in the lines.
Dancers are beautiful freaks who create stories via cohesion of lines in space. We lurk amongst the generic population ready to appease our voyeurs. We invite you to our mobile variety “Freak Show.”
THE STORY IS IN THE LINES… THEREFORE, LINES MATTER
