CORPS (Live Artery In-Progress)
Presenters RSVP here.
The work-in-progress excerpts of Milka Djordevich’s CORPS examine the labor and the feminine body through the lens of regimented movement, and reveal similarities across traditional, militaristic, ritual, athletic, and folk movement forms. The work is a continuation of Djordjevich’s ongoing questioning of contemporary dance’s preoccupation with neutrality, anonymity and the hyper-objectification of the female body. The dance is developed with an esteemed professional group of six dancers: Laurel Atwell, Dorothy Dubrule, Allie Hankins, Tiara Jackson, Daeun Jung and devika wickremesinghe, with composer Chris Peck.
