New York City
Choreographers Liam Clancy, Nina Haft and Cid Pearlman present California Triple Feature, a dynamic evening of new dance and performance that explores the complexity of gender through subjects as diverse as bullying, desire, loss, and life in outer space.
In Division Street, Liam Clancy uses a pair of stilts, some very long pants and a bicycle to take the audience from his first day of eighth grade to his final confrontation between a bully, his father and himself. Clancy’s hybrid style blends contemporary American dance and theater with elements of vaudeville and circus.
Nina Haft & Company’s The Further Adventures of Comrade Valentina in Deep Space charts the terrain of a darkly farcical sci-fi utopia where female cosmonauts encounter the void, and entice each other into never turning back. Haft’s luscious and quirky choreography includes original video by Nina Levitt, and is set to electronic music and sound design by Scott Marshall of paniculture.
Known for her “brash wit and postpunk aesthetics” (LA Weekly), Cid Pearlman presents small variations, a sextet exploring intimacy, ambiguity, and the multiple meanings of “missing.” With a movement vocabulary that shifts between a rough-and-tumble physicality, intricate partnering, and moments of delicate touch, small variations subtly disrupts traditional notions of sexuality, desire, gender, and friendship. The piece is performed to an original recorded score by composer/cellist Joan Jeanrenaud, formerly of Kronos Quartet.
