PASS: Colleen Thomas Dance
September 26, 5 PM Reception & 6 PM Performance | $10
New York based choreographer and performer, Colleen Thomas, creates lush movement that mixes humanity with virtuosity. For her company's PASS performance, she will present excerpts from her full-length piece "HER(E) REPETITIVE BLUEPRINT" which will premiere at the 92nd Street Y in October. Colleen Thomas and her stellar performers beg the question from a female perspective, " Can you ever truly see us as equals?"
Colleen Thomas Dance: We see what we think we know, not what stands before us. In Her(e) Repetitive Blueprint, the inevitability of our perception is called into question. How can we see clearly if we are beholden to the stories we keep telling ourselves? And yet we try, we must. We scrap it all and start over knowing that there is no clean slate, only these bodies and the web of perceived social, gender and racial narratives that run rampant across the shapes and mounds that hold our blood and guts. Life is here, this moment. Now and now and now. And then we begin again even when the imprints remain.
