No Longer Showing.
a Natural dance is concerned with ways of structuring bodies as they fall out of relation aesthetically and spiritually while still locating ways of being together. Performed by Addys Gonzalez, Justin Cabrillos, Effie Bowen, Hilary Clark, and Jen Rosenblit with Lighting Design by Elliott Jenetopulos and set construction by Sam Roeck. This work locates logic outside of a normative lens, looking to an improvisatory system for disrupting behavior while still ushering in the glory of absurdity, timing, meaning, sequence, divinity, and the political.
