New Works: Jessica Morgan
Jessica Morgans work has been hailed as unsettling and transfixing (Dance View Times). Her new evening-length work deems the illness experience as an event of grief, suffering and healing, investigating the symbiosis of the mind and body during illness and physical failings.
Dance, song and text create a world where medicine straddles the line of miraculous and terrifying. Emotional and physical responses confront the personal meanings of illness and the stigma and shame that often accompany it. Words cannot truly describe the experience of your body failing you. It is a force that makes us confront our mortality and weakness and can halt what we deem as living.
Performed by Jessica Morgan, Lindsay Lee,Colleen Cintron, Marie Douesnard, Ula Gadea and Miranda Lyon. Original music by John Huber
