Choreographer Carrie Ahern, in collaboration with composer/soprano Kristin Norderval, presents Red. Taking inspiration from Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale as well as the clean lines of St. Mark's Church, Red explores the machine of repression under the guise of supreme order and calm. At once aggressive and vulnerable, shrill and hushed, this timely piece exposes the chaos in the underbelly of every society. It recognizes every human being's capacity both for violence and acts of tenderness. Featuring an all female ensemble of ten, Red is created and performed in collaboration with Donna Bouthillier, Jennifer A. Cooper, Carolyn Hall, Shannon Hummel, Debra Rodman, and Leigh Secrest, among others. Composer Kristin Norderval and the dancers provide a live acoustic and electronic score, Naoko Nagata creates costumes, and Carol Mullins designs the lights.
