Fronteras: An Homage to Whatshername
Almanac Dance Circus Theatre
Wed, May 3, 2017
“An Homage to Whatshername is an effort to make an Almanac piece led/guided/propelled entirely by the women in the company. To amplify our particular voices, our ideas, our bodies, our skills and our life experiences.” Evelyn Langley of Almanac
In admiration of she who learned to cushion confidence between I-feel-likes and I-don’t-knows.
In honor of her unwavering words dismissed as crazy dangerous, nasty, offensive, corrupt, threatening.
In admiration of those who skillfully navigate the ways their bodies are seen.
What if men didn’t talk all the time?
A devised work of spellbinding movement, a sense of humor, and stunning acrobatics, that unpacks the biases associated with female-identifying people in positions of power. Circus sequences play with the natural differences between feminine and masculine energies—and question what is universal and what is just you and me.
