Responsive Wild

Choreography by Krissy Harris

Responsive Wild considers and questions notions of womanhood and femininity. Inspired by family history, rock and roll, and physics concepts, Harris investigates these ideas through highly physical, bold and expansive movement. The work is in conversation with feminist theories and reveals a complex interrelationship of the inside/outside body and its potential for energetic expression. 

Ghost Bride

Choreography by Rose Xinran Qi 

Ghost Bride is based on the Asian tradition of a ghost marriage, when a man dies early in life and his family recruits a young woman to marry him in spirit. Through a combination of movements derived from postmodern dance and classical Chinese dance, this work conveys a story of revolution for women’s rights through time and place. Qi evokes the Chinese feminine form Shenyun (bearing) through breath control in order to communicate the internal emotion behind specific movements.
