This work features a menagerie of dancers outfitted in pastel wigs and costumes. A camera placed onstage catches these characters in moments of vulnerability, competition, anxiety, and redemption. The image from the camera feeds directly to a projection on the back wall, such that their failures and triumphs can be seen from all angles. Deeply relatable and at times laugh-out-loud funny, Bad! Bad! Bad! is a candy-coated exploration of performativity and imposter syndrome.

Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus is an experiment in actively engaging with my internal anxieties and coping mechanisms while improvising in front of an audience. In this work, I use a mylar emergency poncho as both a way to be concealed, as well as permission to open up. The movement fluctuates rapidly between being fearful, and celebratory. The noise of the mylar is reminiscent of the loudness of just existing.

Tantrum Like Noises

Performance:
Sophia Arnall, Vlad Kremenovic, Sage King, Jordan MacIntosh-Hougham, Maya Tacon

This work is sourced from a collective archive of memory and responses surrounding the themes of home, loss, paranoia, and the Cascadia Subduction Zone. The dancers sing a song to the back of the stage, perform how not to sit in a chair (read: how not to feel stable), and execute gestures reminiscent of earthquake drills and safety procedures. It is melancholy, a touch neurotic, witty, and sometimes laugh-out-loud. It is a beautiful, loving, confused, tantrum.
