Veiled Revue
By Amber Daniels and Becky Hill

Veiled ciphers through historic vaudeville repertoire extracting inspiration to create an abstract dance theater work. In an era of #MeToo, Black Lives Matter, American territory borders, a global pandemic, a monumental presidential election and further investigations of social norms, we are researchers with the knowledge that the present is affected by our past. Using vignettes, audiences will simultaneously experience both the despair that haunted the entertainment industry of the vaudeville era, as well as the joy. We will manipulate how vaudeville was viewed then versus the transformation of what it could be today. The piece will be performed in “armor,” a costume that covers the body entirely to erase gender, sexuality, race and class. It is our hope through this investigation, we will have audiences question, react and be moved to action.

I AM IN A BASEMENT
By Tristan Koepke

Reflecting on creative practices on pause, Tristan builds small accumulations that give way to lacy patterns of ritual that unfold and rupture into chaotic, effervescent celebrations of catharsis and release. Sinewy threads of movement repeat and intervene in a contemplation exertion, endurance and destruction.

Responsive Wild
Choreography by Krissy Harris

Responsive Wild considers and questions notions of womanhood and femininity. Inspired by family history, rock and roll, and physics concepts, Harris investigates these ideas through highly physical, bold and expansive movement. The work is in conversation with feminist theories and reveals a complex interrelationship of the inside/outside body and its potential for energetic expression.

Ghost Bride
Choreography by Rose Xinran Qi

Ghost Bride is based on the Asian tradition of a ghost marriage, when a man dies early in life and his family recruits a young woman to marry him in spirit. Through a combination of movements derived from postmodern dance and classical Chinese dance, this work conveys a story of revolution for women’s rights through time and place. Qi evokes the Chinese feminine form Shenyun (bearing) through breath control in order to communicate the internal emotion behind specific movements.
