AXIS Dance Company: Dix minutes plus tard
Marc Brew: Remember When
AXIS Artistic Director Marc Brew presents Remember When, a work which draws upon exposure, peeling away layers, line and extension, intricate folding, and placement and replacement. This intimate solo performances opens a conversation of remembrance, looking from past to present. AXIS Dance Company also presents Sonya Delwaide’s Dix minutes plus tard, performed by company members Julie Crothers and Alivia Schaffer.
Kinetic Light: to bend a bough and Broken Intent
In these two intimate duets, dancers Laurel Lawson and Alice Sheppard explore the twists and turns of desire and the invitations of momentum, acceleration, and gravity.
(do not) despair solo traces choreography, disability, queerness, and intimacy through language, power, and consent. Exploring the politics of care and pity, Perel reconfigures the performer-audience relationship to create a space for a body in pain. Quoting texts by artists with disabilities, survivors, and queer writers, she searches for a means of translation between the felt experience of pain and the way it can or cannot be communicated to the world. Futility, loss, and the incomprehensible are integral to the journey from one’s body to another.
Join us after the performance for a conversation with the artists moderated by Hentyle Yapp, Assistant Professor, NYU Department of Art and Public Policy.
