Lick My Gun at March Scratch Night
March 6, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0FREE
The popular, long running works-in-progress series on the first Monday of every month.
Come see a roster of Philly’s most talented artists perform new material from shows they are working on in this fast-paced sampling of contemporary theater, dance, performance art, and everything in between. Scratch Night features short performances by four-to-six companies/artists, offering an inside look at the future of performance.
This month’s lineup:
The Case For Invagination by Nicole Bindler
The body is not a bunch of separate parts, but one thing that has infinite folds. Through this process of invagination we make ourselves. This dance is a practice of swelling myself up, cleaving, folding, complexifying (as we do in our embryonic development).
The Case for Invagination is a feminist reimagining of space. What if we could be invaginated by space as opposed to penetrating space? Instead of us inserting ourselves into the world with all of our ambitions and fear, could we allow the world to draw us into it?
Onion Dances by Talia Mason
Onion Dances is about unveiling layers, digging deeper, and finding visceral, full-bodied movement and full-bodied feelings. In the solo, Talia explores her Jewish and American roots as a 7th generation American Jew. She is interested in inherited trauma and how our bodies physically manifest layers of history.
Lick My Gun by Zornitsa Stoyanova a.k.a. Here[begin] Dance
Lick My Gun Solo, is an excerpt of a full evening piece to premiere in 2018. It explores representation of the female body connected to gun ownership, power dynamics and sexuality. It is very much in progress.
CONTAINERTOPIA by Julia Frey & Sam Day Harmet (Casual FreyDay)
CONTAINERTOPIA is a deconstructed vaudevillian comedy about the ever-shrinking living spaces that city dwellers submit themselves to. The interdisciplinary performance will use contemporary rearrangements of Weimar cabaret music and carefully mapped projections to engage, explore, and expose the popular trends of the micro-apartment and the tiny living movement. The minuscule spaces offered as innovation in today’s housing market highlight historic levels of income inequality as well as the global necessity for smaller impact living. Are the spaces afforded to us affordable?
The Riddle Of How To Dress by Justin Rose
The Riddle of How To Dress is an experiment in brutal clown.
I’m not myself today by Plant Me Here
I’m not myself today is an examination of apathy in the face of wanting more.
