Second Season: "I AM WOMB" and "Champagne Party for Time Travelers"
I AM WOMB
Choreographed by Gabriela Grant
Grant explores how colored female bodies are crafted and presented in the eyes of institutions. She examines their femininity and masculinity and how this contributes to their commodification. It also explores how this impacts women’s relationships between one another. The work fuses her movement from her African and urban movement training, as well as her modern dance training. One question Grant presents and invites the audience to think about is, "How can women reclaim the power in their femininity?"
Champagne Party for Time Travelers
Written and Choreographed by Sydney Lemelin and Hana Huie
This piece is based on the real party that famed physicist Stephen Hawking threw for time travelers, for which he sent invitations after the party ended. Lemelin and Huie combine theater and dance to explore the journey of believing in things that do not exist and pursuing what is important to us, however insignificant we may be in the universe.
