Washed: a contemporary solo exploring memory, fragmentation, and narrative reflection.
by Anna Edwards
Washed is a contemporary dance solo that explores memory, fragmentation, and narrative reflection. The movement was generated based on Edwards’ personal version of narrative reflection and the breakage, fragmentation, and re-assemblage that was evident within her own development along with the lyrics she composed.
How to Cope is a performative lecture that discusses how we, as an American society, cope with stress.
by Cass Simmons
How to Cope is a performative lecture that discusses how we, as an American society, cope with stress. In this comedic dance work, I question what defense mechanisms are being activated in my responses to stress and discomfort and how they are seeping out through my coping.
This work explores the difference between giving enough and overextending.
by Jackie Bennett
This work is an exploration of giving and how it can become burdensome. It asks the questions of: when is enough, enough, what is the balance of give and take, and how do I give back to myself. It simultaneously explores the importance of giving and the importance of receiving.
The adornment of wounds given, and wounds received.
by Michael Rank: “The Orchard Knives”
The adornment of wounds given, and wounds received. An exploration of repetitive shapings constrained within the cycle of an action and a regret- And the travel and the terrain that occupy the spaces between.
By Chance is a spontaneous and community-partnered choreography experience.
by Renay Aumiller
By Chance is a practice in spontaneous and community-partnered dance making. The movement could not exist without audience input, nor could the performance without others presence in the room. It is a practice in transparency, and it attempts to adjust the roles of the performer and audience relationship.
