Liz from VIA Dance Collaborative sent over these photos of costumes she made with items from the warehouse. They look much better on the mannequins than in our bins. I especially love the use of non-traditional materials.
The organization is presenting new work beginning next Thursday, December 15. Dawn Poirier’s Plus X threads together time and various love stories, highlighting the compartmentalization of (internal) ruminations and (external) affairs. Katie Swords’ new work examines the inner workings of self-perception and the desperate things we do to feel a part of something “bigger” than ourselves. Adrienne Westwood’s new duet attempts an embodied investigation of simulacra, and it centers around the two dancers and 16 hand-crank music boxes, sewn into their clothing.
Very intriguing. For tickets, please check here.
