Passionate Heart

Women’s Stories Through Dance

 

 

a moment of quiet peace in fast paced, complex lives

A project undertaken in collaboration with Dancetheatre David Earle, Passionate Heart offers solos and duets that speak of maturity, friendship, loss, love, loneliness, entrapment and renewal. Performed in an intimate studio setting and followed by a casual discussion, this hour-long presentation connects audience and performers through the art of dance – a potent medium for portraying emotions, thoughts, and feelings that are often left unspoken.

MANICPIXIEDREAMGIRLS

Rock Bottom Movement

 

 

a gleeful popculture mashup

“MANICPIXIEDREAMGIRLS” is inspired by the classic 2004 indie romantic comedy “Garden State.” It is a gleeful pop­culture mashup featuring 90’s female singer­songwriter karaoke, athletic dance ­breaks, and plenty of dialogue from the film itself. Imagine if Zach Braff directed Zooey Deschanel in a psychedelic Fleetwood Mac music video, and Dido and Jewel were interns. It is one hour trip through precise dance breaks, karaoke, fantasies, inflatables, desires, femininity and tropes of the dancer and the dream girl. The work is an absurd prance through the pretend world of the “manic pixie dream girl,” to satirize the term coined by Nathan Rabin in 2005 to describe “that bubbly, shallow cinematic creature that exists solely in the fevered imaginations of sensitive writer-directors to teach broodingly soulful young men to embrace life and its infinite mysteries and adventures.” The work is a non-linear and non-narrative in structure with very little text.

EUNOIA

Fujiwara Dance Inventions

 

 

a verbal, visual, and visceral journey

Eunoia is Christian Bök’s award-winning and bestselling book of conceptual poetry. It is built on the notion of constraining language to one vowel per chapter and tells stories in ways that are as pleasurable as they are ingenious. Denise Fujiwara’s adaptation of the book is a multimedia experience of dance, video, music and costume that employs similar constraints in such inventive ways that it has resulted in a groundbreaking performance lauded by audiences and critics alike.

EUNOIA takes the audience on a verbal, visual and visceral journey. The conceit of the poem is introduced through games and then builds in complexity with fanciful narratives and semiotic play. Initially the audience grapples with the rich play of words and images, and then as the performance unfolds, they surrender to the surprises and wit that are revealed through layers of meaning in the moment.
