Milka Djordjevich + Chris Peck: MASS

Djordjevich Event V2

Archived Event

No Longer Showing.

MASS is a dance, singing and dancing, a song and dance in a black box, a slow dance on a pedestal for three women, with music. It’s also the mass, force, and friction against, around, and inside that box. It’s a trio of voices tuning, their bodies objectified and recomposed through gradual processes in motion and sound. Like a prayer, it proceeds without manipulation, loving the flaw. Choreography by Milka Djordjevich, music by Chris Peck, performed by Jessica Cook, Kyli Kleven and Djordjevich, lighting by Madeline Best, scenic design by Sara C. Walsh, costumes by Naomi Luppescu and with performance advisor Rebecca Brooks. Curated by Matthew Lyons.

April 30–May 2, 8pm
Tickets $15
