Local(e) - Chinook 2019

Chinook - Westbury Theatre

Dance

Bodies in spaces and all that those spaces can hold. Three local artists cover everything from Basketball, to Apocalyptic Parties, to Water Protection.

the music crept by us: A woman finds herself consumed by a New Year’s Eve bash; proposing an unplanned toast, making music with a monster, and losing herself before the countdown. Rebecca Sadowski, along with collaborators Dean Musani and Gianna Vacirca, explores the intersections of theatre, dance, and sound composition through choreography, improvisation, and of course, the words of Leonard Cohen.

Tip Off!: Snap back to the 90’s with this basketball inspired movement piece. Dribble, dunk, dance; it’s time to slam. A new piece choreographed by NIUBOI, recipient of the 2018 New Work Award by the Good Women Dance Collective.

mni wiconi/water is life: mni wiconi/water is life is a performance piece exploring the somatic experience of mass political movements and the reverberations that follow. It looks at the intimate-physical experience of resistance between people on all "sides" of the movement, and aims to find voice and humanism in the legal aftermath of mass arrest. mni wiconi/water is life is based on Nicole’s firsthand experience of traveling to Standing Rock, ND in 2016 as a water protector. *This project is developed in consultation with Elders as well as Indigenous and non-Indigenous participants of the Standing Rock movement."
