||Peter Carpenter(Chicago): Rituals of Abundance for Lean Times #7: Divisions of Labor"
Rituals of Abundance for Lean Times #7: Divisions of Labor examines the politics of choreographic process from the standpoint of the solo choreographer/dancer. Drawing from Marxist perspectives on labor and capital, Carpenter identifies the distinct yet inter-related processes of dancing and choreography as a struggle for agency that resonates beyond the concert stage and into arenas of privilege and access to power.||
||Kate Corby (Madison, Chicago, New York) - "GO" and "Growing Season"
"Rapid-fire timing and complex exchanges give her (Corby) ensemble works the zing of a screenplay by Aaron Sorkin."
-Zachary Whittenburg, Dance Magazine (4/11)
"Compelling ... they inhabit and create their own world, one full of gestured conflict and impish daring, a defiance for a spell they aim at the audience. Corby's movement keeps you guessing and pulls you in."
-Sid Smith, Chicago Tribune (7/30/10) ||
||MaryAnn McGovern (Seattle, Chicago) - "A Recipe for Polarity part 2|Echo Chamber"
This new work implicates mass-media outlets as catalysts for growing political polarization in America.
"...the wonderful relationships between the dancers lift the process from banal illustration into a truly lyrical state: It
is like a kind of street poetry of dance, simultaneously rough and smooth, competitive and cooperative, crass and elegant."-Omar Wiley, Seattle Star||
||Jessie Young (Chicago, Seattle) - "Overnight"
Lasting for, extending over, or remaining during a night. Within Overnight, is an explored landscape of people working to relate to each other over the course of one evening. Sleepy moments are torn up by sudden out bursts of conflict, as the dancers work to navigate between intricate gestures and displaced limbs.||
