Join us for SOAK 2017 LEIMAY Friends and Fellows Showcase featuring Heidi Bosvert, The People Movers, and Lindsey Mandolini.
Heidi Bosvert: Walking Wounded
Walking Wounded is a multi-media performance that gives voice to trauma through generative sound and live drawing stemming from the dancers’ nervous system.The piece re-composes narrative fragments, re-animating the life force that lies within often blocked or shattered bodies due to painful life experiences.
Glass is a dance performance built around the concept of a glass ceiling. Featuring music by Peter Van Zandt Lane and poetry by Olivia Clare, four women move under, around, and beneath constructed and suggested barriers. Glass brings to light questions of spectatorship, conformity, and credibility.
Lindsey Mandolini: Anomaly
Anomaly is an autobiographical solo about gender, identity, and a rare medical syndrome. Mandolini reveals how her anatomical oddity has shaped her perspective and understanding of self. Receiving her diagnosis at age 16, she attempts to turn a personal teenage tragedy into a twentysomething comedy. A decade of experiences and realizations from a woman born without a womb. She explores fantastically imagined events of womanhood and what it means to continuously come of age.
Space is limited. Online RSVP required.
