OosImaginary and Fresh Blood Productions/KC Chun-Manning
July 8-9, 8pm
PHCA's Extraordinary Performance Importation and Circulation (EPIC) Program presents
OosImaginary (Chicago)/Fresh Blood Productions (Denver)
$14 at door / $11 online at

A split bill pairing dance/theatre/music trio OosImaginary's dynamic, genre-bending contemporary performance with Denver choreographer KC Chun-Manning's virtuoso contemporary dance.    

OosImaginary are coming all the way from Chicago to find you, with the sole pursue of hurtling their ridiculawesome improvisational performance into the depths of your consciousness.  Well, they're on a road trip tracking down all kinds of people like you; but you're high on their list.  Watch it.  You'll have to be here to do that.

Check out OosImaginary's YouTube Trailer here.

As a collective, Fresh Blood Productions is rooted in the fascination with the way our interior landscape resonates through our bodies, encounters and spontaneous choices.  With a penchant for assertive athleticism and mischievous whimsy, they create work that magnifies the electric, serpentine nature of our spines and our fiery dependence on each other. The company framework aims to develop dance both independently and collaboratively, serving as a home-base for production.

OosImaginary hails from the beautiful Archer Ballroom in Chicago, IL, which serves as a home, studio, & performance space for the members of the group. The group is made up of Lisa Frank, Teddy Rankin-Parker, and Sam Goodman. Coming from vastly different backgrounds, each member brings a unique blend of talents to create a powerful, heterogeneous, and always-unpredictable style. Their collaborative process places equal emphasis on rigorous physical training, hybridizing forms, & engaging with the present. Above all, OosImaginary is striving towards a holistic, or "total" improvisation, in which roles of musician, dancer, and actor may disintegrate, leaving nothing but space, bodies in it, and their tools of expression.
This summer they are touring their work nationally, presenting performances & workshops in such cities as Louisville, Santa Fe, Salt Lake, City, Seattle, San Francisco, & Ventura. They are charting the progress of the tour on their blog, which can be viewed at http://oosimaginary.tumblr.com/.

In addition to these performances, Sam, Lisa, & Teddy will offer a workshop in Improvisational Performance on Friday, July 9th from 2-5 PM. The workshop will also take place at the Packing House, is open to the public and is priced on a sliding scale from $10-$30.



FBP Bio:
FRESH BLOOD Productionsis a Brooklyn and Denver-based dance company established in 2004 under the co-artistic direction of KC Chun-Manning and Jennifer Schmermund, who revel in their distinct points-of-view and unique choreographic style, yet believe these differences propel them in spontaneous and uncharted directions. FRESH BLOOD Productions/KC Chun-Manning is presently grounded in the diverse, multigenerational, and amazing group of women: Eve Brady, Candess Giyan, Mary Lynn Lewark, Jennifer Twilley, Kristine Whittle and Ying Zhu.  

KC Chun-Manning's choreography has been presented at The Dairy Center for the Performing Arts, The University of Colorado at Boulder NeXus 2009 and 2010 , Aspen Dance Connection, The Packing House Center for the Performing Arts, and at the D.L. Parsons Theater.  Nationally, KC has presented her choreography at such venues as the 2006 DUMBO Dance Festival, Brooklyn Arts Exchange, the Merce Cunningham Studio and Trinity College. She currently teaches at A Living Arts Centre and Between the Bones in Denver, and has taught master classes at Aspen Dance Connection, Denver University, Bucknell University, and Trinity College.
