Rebekah Enderle

This project explores the relationship between coping and ritual. The dance explores the relationship both internally (humans as individuals existing, surviving, and thriving in the world) and externally (relationships as codependency and/ versus partnership). How does ritual support a human life and an interpersonal relationship? How does it hinder? This new work examines how coping mechanisms we as humans use to survive/ exist/ thrive in the world are rituals and how the inverse relationship exists when rituals become tools for coping both in individual inner life and between humans in relationships.

Erin Yen

“I have chosen dance as my medium because a well-fleshed-out understanding of one’s physical body is crucial, especially at a time where I feel asked to leave it so often. I am currently working with movement that asks what the body does when it interacts with technology. I am curious to get back in touch with the weighted nature of gravity, and I am exploring ways to engage fully with all senses through movement.”

Erin Yen is a Bay Area transplant hailing from the Midwest. Her eclectic training began in Chicago, and Erin holds a BFA with Distinction in Dance from The Ohio State University. She has performed works by artists Ohad Naharin, Bebe Miller, Johannes Weiland, and Eddie Taketa, and she has danced with companies such as Alvin Ailey and BalletMet. Erin is also fluent in the Laban Systems of Movement Analysis, and uses this throughout choreography and notation projects. Her personal practice investigates one’s understanding of self and ‘other’ (in a growing age of technology.)

 

Hannah Mackenzie-Margulies

Multimodal and often auto-ethnographic, my work engages questions of agency and identity by drawing on elements of surrealism, pastiche and hyperreality. My proposed project, tentatively titled “You are the only one in this Hangout” draws on dances I’ve made while waiting for my day-job coworkers to dial into video calls — digital dances that are simultaneously work and not-work. Laced with humor, horror, and the angst of feeling trapped in an online nether-world, “You are” explores the lonelier side of virtual reality, and considers new definitions for connection in our Slack-driven moment.

Hannah MacKenzie-Margulies is a multidisciplinary dancer, choreographer, and educator based in Oakland, CA. A native of Lexington, Massachusetts, Hannah is a founding member of sub.set dance and an alumna of ODC’s Pilot program. Her choreography has been presented at Ten Tiny Dances, TBA: The Works, the Northwest Film Center, HQ PDX, and ODC’s Studio B. Also an accomplished lindy hop dancer and teacher, Hannah currently she serves as the Education Coordinator for the 9:20 Special, San Francisco’s longest running weekly swing dance, and teaches throughout the Bay Area.

Julia Rose

Silence of the Springs is a horror comedy dance piece. It explores coping mechanisms and hidden rituals that people have developed to manage the precarious environmental and economic states of their personal lives, as well as broader concerns over an unstable global future. The work attempts to illuminate communal rituals and ceremonies that are not ordinarily regarded as such. The title is a combination of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring, Igor Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, and Jonathan Demme’s Silence of the Lambs; it thereby announces the work’s play with themes that pervade all three of these classics.

Julia Rose creates dance/theatre/body based performance art that aims to bring more compassion into social spaces held and dominated by the middle and upper class. Her past works have been about restaurants, universities, and sidewalks in the financial district. Her work centers on power dynamics, anxiety, isolation, and mental health. She works through possibilities of social drama afforded by expressionism, dada, existentialism, outsider art, and immersive haunted houses. Julia studied philosophy and German at UC Berkeley, theatre at LACC Theatre Academy and San Francisco School of the Arts, and a variety of dance styles while at Los Angeles City College, Freie Universität Berlin, and UC Berkeley. Currently she studies dance at City College of San Francisco, ODC, and Lines, as well as teaching adult ballet at the YMCA.
