Spring Term

Working title/working description:  as such, or not 

Devised work with Mauriah Donegan Kraker

Stansbury Theatre - May 9, 10, 11 at 7:30 pm and May 11 at 2:30 pm

as such, or not is a devised work created in collaboration with student composers, musicians, actors and dancers. Over the course of the evening, tap dance boards become set pieces, the stage is reimagined, a drum kit is assembled.  Pop and punk sounds instigate obsessively danced phrases. A game derived of mismatched sports cues calls forth end zone dances and pop star gesturing. A manifesto for disorientating patterns of physicality and language, or not.
