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.

Dance at the Registry is thrilled to partner with MT Space to bring three dance workshops to Kitchener-Waterloo. These workshops are led by Rock Bottom Movement founder and choreographer Alyssa Martin and will be happening January 24-26 at The Registry. For more information and to reserve a spot visit:
