Racy Brand's newest work is "Is This What You Thought It Would Be Like?". Called a solo with guests, the work is a physical examination of immaterial ideas, with exhaustion, boredom, displacement and redirection as points of study within the work.|
A native of Huzzah, Missouri, Racy Brand studied at the U. of Illinois/Urbana-Champaign. Now a resident of Brooklyn, Racy presents her works in various venues in Brooklyn and NYC and will also appear with the Catherine Tharin program on Soaking WET.
Tina Croll returns to the Soaking WET series with a reworking of her 2007 "Ancient Springs," inspired by Kathleen Raine's book "Defending Ancient Springs" and Fellini's "La Strada." Set to an intriguing music collage that includes Tiny Tim, tuva singing, Andy Teirstein, and a Marachi band, the work includes dancers Erin DeLuca-Benson, Michelle Durante, Michelle Gilligan, Alexandra Mount-Campbell, and Erin Pellecchia.
Tina Croll, a founding member of DTW, performed in the companies of Jeff Duncan, Jack Moore, Jamie Cunningham, and Judith Dunn. She choreographs for her own Tina Croll + Company and, with Jamie Cunningham, directs their ongoing project From the Horse's Mouth.
Jennifer Edwards will present "Cadence," created in collaboration with dancers Kristen Bell and Callie Ritter. The dancers depict two women who are caught in a moment, possibly in the midst of a conversation, an argument, a crisis? Perhaps they are not two people at all, but two sides of one woman's story and her struggle to understand herself.
Jennifer Edwards is a choreographer/speaker/educator/writer focusing on communications within organizations, communities, between people, and with one's self. She is a partner at Edwards and Skybetter, a popular New York-based design company.
Garnet Henderson will premiere "Don't Lean on Me, Man," a duet which navigates the intricacies and ambiguities of one-on-one interaction. As the dance becomes progressively more adventurous and complex, so, too, does the emotional relationship between dancers Henderson and Rebecca Hadley.
Garnet Henderson is a dancer, choreographer, freelance writer, and personal trainer, certified as a Women's Fitness Specialist through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. The Jackson Hole, Wyoming native graduated cum laude from Columbia University in 2013 and has presented her work in numerous NYC venues.
Hanna Q Dance Company will premiere "Equus" (Horse), choreographed by artistic director Johanna LjungQvist-Brinson. Horses of all descriptions - wild horses, work horses, war horses, show horses, etc. - are the inspiration for this powerful, positive work set to music by Eric Whitacre.
Johanna LjungQvist-Brinson, founder/choreographer of Hanna Q Dance Co, is a native of Boras, Sweden, where she started dancing at age 3 and graduated from the U. of Dance and Circus in Stockholm.
