Hadar Ahuvia and Meredith Lyons present work exploring location and forging of identity.
Hadar Ahuvia's Joy Vey contends with a Zionist legacy by turning beloved Israeli poems, folk songs, and dances to face Zionism's original sins. Israeli folk-dance choreographers made their work out of spiritual and ideological necessity to remake the Jewish body and nation. In Joy Vey, Ahuvia follows, but reconfigure their footsteps.
Directed by Meredith Lyons, in collaboration with performer Kellie Lynch, The Chicken and The Egg is a new dance work exploring what comes first in creative and life partnerships. Lyons and Lynch expose the collision of their internal processes as artists battling their own strong willed personalties as mid career independent women in their mid 30's. The Chicken and The Egg questions how it is that we do what we do, and what is that we should really be doing first.
DANCE/OR/PERFORMANCE is supported by the Moser Family Foundation.
