Studio 210 Winter 2021 Residency Performance
March 6, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm$5 – $50
Join Studio 210 and Deborah Slater Dance Theater at this virtual performance event by our Winter 2021 Residents: Cynthia Ling Lee and Bahiya Movement! The performance will be a culmination of an 8-week residency and will explore rituals of grief and healing in response to our current moment of crisis.
In Grief Rituals/Somatic Scores for Living During a Pandemic, Cynthia Ling Lee has been exploring participatory structures that create intimacy, invite somatic embodiment, and offer communal rituals for processing grief and trauma. Ranging from audio-based improvisational scores to carefully crafted mourning rituals on Zoom, her work asks questions specific to our current moment.
Bahiya Movement will present and perform in Abacus, a movement performance in which “abused feelings reject the calculated process of healing.” Exploring the body’s response to trauma and challenges brought about by recovery, Bahiya Movement seeks to uncover the painful process of healing and the strength one must find to persevere.
This event will be hosted on Zoom and tickets are a suggested donation of $5-$50. Proceeds support the Residency program and Studio 210, helping us continue to offer this opportunity to performing artists throughout the greater Bay Area. If you are unable to donate at this time, but would like to attend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a free URL to the event.
Audience participation is the final major component of this residency for the artists and we invite the audience to participate in a discussion following the performance portion of the evening. The artists will first ask questions of the audience and then the audience will have an opportunity to ask the artists and performers questions.
