Orz

"Orz" looks for deeper relationship between words, pure movement and emotion. The Boundary of the Freedom of Speech in today’s world has become more and more ambiguous and often challenges the meaning of RESPECT to the utmost. "Orz", read as [o-are-zee], obtains materials from commentaries among social media and cyber-culture to create dance vocabulary and the conversation between words, body and emotion.

learning to see in the dark

Gabriella Carmichael's ‘learning to see in the dark’ is a solo study in undoing pain. It is inspired by the forest, the spaces between the stars, forgotten trauma, the color red, a fear of heights, the lessons we learn from lying, queer desire, self love, wind chimes, and the places we call home. This project is intertwined with personal and collective memories, healing practices, voice, and poetry. It honors femme power and the moments that make us feel brave.

Socrates at the Baths

In Socrates at the Baths, Mary Falls Kennedy and the Movement Accomplices take inspiration from ancient Greek pottery and Olympic synchronized swimming to craft a world that is an oddball circus full of questions without answers, set against a backdrop of a cacophonous and incongruous score made up of quizzical classical music (taken largely from Shostakovich’s Jazz Opera) and popular culture songs premised on questions (such as Jimmy Ruffin’s “What Becomes of the Brokenhearted?”).

Disco Biscuits

Disco Biscuits is a new genre-and gender- bending version of The Rite of Spring using disco, soul and funk music. Taking inspiration from the monthly party Wet Noise as well as both Nijinsky and Bausch’s RiteDisco Biscuits starts off as a celebration in a nameless discotheque, and rapidly devolves into a nightmarish landscape where it proves to show that it is entirely possible to stay too long at the fair. 

Using a camp sensibility, and taken from the personal experiences of the cast, Disco Biscuits will examine how something as seemingly utopian as the dance floor can turn into something decadent, addictive, and empty.
