SOFTEN THE BODY AND UNLEASH THE FEMALE VOICE
Join CounterPulse for a double bill evening featuring works by their Edge 2020 residency artists.
Edge is an incubation residency and commissioning program for contemporary choreographers whose work is deeply curious about the intersection of art practice and social change.
WITH by Rachael Dichter & Dia Dear blends physical practices and nightlife for a multi-generational queer phenomenon. WITH invites the audience to engage in a deep, extensive physical exploration of movement to move beyond singularity. Together Rachael & Dia blur boundaries of real/unreal and distance/intimacy to activate performance as a non-performative act.
These Teeth by Ishan (Armineh Astanbous & Rachael Sharkland) explores the conditioned figure of the female voice as it influences subjectivity and embodied experience. We draw on personal history and consider the female voice and body more broadly as it has been disciplined into thinking, speaking, and moving along ligatures that re-inscribe its voicelessness. In refusing these terms that subjugate and censor, our process exalts the range and capacity of the feminine body and voice.
