Event

Colony
Experimental choreographers and performing artists Melissa Krodman and Kelly Bond, bring their piece Colony back to Philadelphia. Colony is a 50-minute duet that employs repetition and duration to transform  sometimes imperceptibly  dynamic movement. Elements combine to generate a tautness that approaches its limit, dips and regains, but that never breaks.

"so visceral and surprisingand physically impressive that it'll make you feel something."
--Washington City Paper

"Bond and Krodman are highly disciplined performers, athletes with finely tuned senses of drama and play. Colony is an abstract piece ripe for interpretation and projection. However ambiguous and enigmatic it may appear, it's built around a fascinating dramatic arc and structure, and a score that brilliantly weaves in and out of pummeling rhythms to abstract electronics, from pop-song fragments to simply the sound of the breath.[I]t's as simple as it is disarming..."
--DCist


"...mesmerizing and oddly hypnotic, if not a little unsettling.The performers weave a sort of energy between themselves, as if they are connected by a series of vibrating strings.You are a piece of the play, caught in a thick humming molasses that fills the space for 50 melodic minutes"
--DC Theatre Scene
