If so, was it good?

If so, was it good?, a new dance work by long time friends and new time collaborators Sofia EngelmanLindsey JenningsDelaney McDonough, and Em Papineau, explores truth telling, lying, conspiracy, and fake news to grapple with personal, political, and cultural identity and ideology in 2023. The quartet move through improvisational interviews, toggling between and falling into roles of interrogators, supporters, witnesses, victims, love interests, protagonists, conspiracists, and tricksters.

by Brynn Hambley

A surreal look at the experience of feminine identified people with invisible illness/disabilities, Antidotal is unapologetic in its analysis of the medical industry’s negative feelings towards feminine patients as well as the anger, grief, and guilt that chronic illness patients deal with every day. An experimental, no-holds-barred exploration that encourages the audience to put themselves in the shoes of disabled and chronically ill people.

Directed by Caitlin Mayernik
