Live Feed In-Process – The Cotillion
The Cotillion is a companion piece to Schaal’s JACK & and expands the investigation of ceremonial entrances into society. From re-entry into society after prison, to ‘entering society’ at debutante balls, The Cotillion draws on traditions of mimicry and mirroring, as seen in early waltz notation and in balls sponsored by African American social clubs since the early 1900s.
Both showings will be followed by an information Q&A:
Friday 3/23 Moderated by Lisa Dent
Saturday 3/24 Moderated by Jackie Sibblies Drury
The Live Feed creative residency program is a laboratory for the development of new commissioned work directed toward our theater. This informal workshop showing offers a sneak peek into the artist’s process and ideas before they hit our stage. Taking place within the intimate working space of the Live Arts studio, each showing is followed by a discussion with the artist moderated by special guests and Live Arts staff.
Approx. runtime: 80 minutes
