It feels like I got a Pit stuck in my stomach...got a cup overflowing with T
It feels like I got a Pit stuck in my stomach...got a cup overflowing with T(2018) Choreographed by Bailey Anderson In the week-long residency for this piece, we unpacked the complexities of pity using an embodied disability studies approach. We looked at the dehumanizing and connecting aspects of pity, how it has been used to marginalize people, and how the use of pity continues complex power dynamics and enacts ideas of normalcy. Although this is our impetus for the work, we invite each member of the audience to be curious about what they see within the work. Where do you become confused, curious, and cautiously excited? This work can have multiple correct meanings/readings that hold up a mirror to who you are, your exposure to modern dance, and how you see the world. We hope you have a nice cup of tea after the show and discuss PitT.
