Sep 2018 – Jan 2019 | The Dance Complex | Cambridge, Massachusetts | More info & tickets
Rebecca McGowan, Julia Friend, and I are performing a new work this month as part of our CATALYSTS Residency at the Dance Complex in Cambridge. We’ve expanded our two previous collaborations into a longer work combining step-dance, shadow theater, traditional ballads, and banjo:
Dancing fingers and feet cast large shadows against walls and screens, inviting us to take a closer look at details we might have missed.
Banjo and feet dance at the clipped pace of a sewing machine while we hear the sung tale of a woman who sews trim on her wedding dress day after day—but won’t say yes, and won’t say no.
Traditional American music blends with percussive dance & shadow theater in an exploration of femininity, yearning, and memory.
This new piece we’ve made will be presented on three weekends alongside work by the other artists in the residency cohort, Dawn Kramer, Aysha Upchurch, and Ali Kenner Brodsky.
