Emily Hansel: Four by Four

May 27, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Sliding scale, NOTAFLOF

Choreographed by Emily Hansel and co-created by dancers Alex Carrington, Mia J. Chong, Shareen DeRyan, and Chelsea Reichert, Four by Four is a messy attempt at refusing productivity. Since beginning work in November 2021, the artists have been practicing the radical act of not knowing. They’ve been fighting their capitalist tendencies, taking their time, embracing messiness, and prioritizing adaptability. Four by Four, featuring original music composed by Sophia Cotraccia and Bed Juodvalkis and lighting design by Thomas Bowersox, is a contemporary dance that is simultaneously light-hearted, serious, ordinary, and one-of-a-kind.

Four by Four is made possible by contributions from the California Arts Council, ODC Theater’s Rental Discount Initiative, Steppin’ Out Dance Studio, and RoundAntennae.

If ticket price is a barrier for you, please email emily@emilyhansel.me to receive a complimentary ticket.
