he Just In Case Woman – a dance installation that explores the relationship between survival and the search for safety in the 21st century.
The installation features an array of chambers that will explore the changing roles, responsibilities and expectations of women in our fast paced, complex, and unsteady world. This installation invites audience members to deconstruct personal survival and the search for safety through a critical lens– looking at how women are impacted by the broader economic and social systems that govern society. This installation highlights how these systems prioritize production and consumerism over creativity, nature, time, and community, thereby creating a life out of balance. The Just in Case Woman installation celebrates the wisdom, skills, strength and power of women to restore balance to their lives and families despite external pressures.
Opening weekend will feature a multi-sensory dance installation with live performances, 3D elements, audio soundscapes and video with somatic artist Diana Lara, visual artist Kim Campisano and contemporary dancers Gizeh Muniz and Amy Wasielewski. The audience is encouraged to interact with the art while reflecting on their personal experiences related to safety. The installation seeks to provide a healing space, a place to nurture creativity and recovery in a shared environment.
