OBSERVANT -PHYSICAL - COMMUNITY-MINDED - SPONTANEOUS - PERSONAL
We are honored to introduce our Spring / Summer 2019 Artists:
Saturday, September 14, 2019, 8PM - Choreography / Dance / Dance Film
This piece is an evolution of a duet, BAB/E, that Thryn began in June of 2018. BAB/E was inspired by ideas of physical impact (body against body, body against itself, body against the floor) relationships, disruption of the feminine ideal, mosh pits, and punk rock music. An exploration of exposed nerves, consumption of sensation, “mud and glass,” it is in part a response to her experience of having certain extremes of physicality withheld by the nature of being a woman causing her to instead research and run after them. In this new iteration, women have space to experience those risks and sensations and indulge in their pure physicality while exploring the subtleties and nuances of the female. This residency is the next step in activating the vulnerability and force that began in the initial stages of the work. Thryn’s work is largely inspired by cinematic effect and timing. She would like to explore how this piece lives in film as well.
