With their newest work WICCA, Rosanne Briens, Erin O'Reilly and Sophie Ammann weave together a celebration of Womanhood and the power of Gentleness - sacred, sensual, vulnerable... strong.
With an original score by Chris Lynch, their trio explores a sincere and personal representation of feminine existence that finds its power in traversing its natural cycles, and the unity of sisterhood that underlies it all.
They have produced something really honest and very worthwhile. They are certainly dancers and choreographers to watch out for in the future. Robert Dow, TV Bomb

About Junebug Company
Junebug Company was founded in Geneva (CH) by Sophie Ammann, Rosanne Briens and Erin O’Reilly. After gaining solid technical training in their respective countries (Switzerland, France and the USA), their paths crossed at the Ballet Junior de Genève. They look to exploit their differences and the harmony that unites them: honoring their individuality, and putting forward their common vision for dance - a living, breathing, human experience, accessible to all.
Junebug Company’s work has been presented in several festivals in Switzerland as well as abroad (Théâtre de la Parfumerie CH, Edinburgh Festival Fringe UK, Incidanse Fribourg CH, Fête de la Musique CH, Fête de la Danse CH, Electron Festival CH, Cottier Dance Project UK, Echo Echo Festival of Dance UK, Festival Ulicnih Sviraca RS).
