horny goat weed by Dalit Ahava – April 10 & 11
The proposed project I am developing is about non-erogenous sensations. Its not something we categorize or necessarily think about as a forethought but mostly as an afterthought. This will be a collective exploration between both the dancers and audience members with more tangible sensations visible through movement but also an improv score to get the audience involved. This will be a lighthearted energetic piece that hopefully will create some laughter and joy.
Dancers: Erin Love, Graziella Murdocca, Emily Dail and Samantha Verity

me myself i by Mary Ann Odete
After her partner tells her her nose is crooked, a young woman goes through an identity crisis, wondering who she is and what it means to be perceived. A music on identity, image, and sanity.
