L+M’s ARMAGEDDON OR SUNRISE OR SOMETHING is a duet made for and by Leah Wilks and Mauriah Kraker. The work is built on scores investigating exhaustion, endurance, and the sensuality/the geography of both internal and external landscapes. The duo grapples with the necessity of proximity to each other: they shake, rumble, and drag each other to the ground, lift each other up, carry + sing to each other. Throughout the work, the body becomes landscape, home, monument, spellcaster, caretaker, boundary, and the location of desires.
Art of Motion Dance Theatre’s SIX SOLOS: Legend, Myth & Nature, conceived and narrated by Lynn Needle, is a one-act hour-long presentation of six solos spanning seven decades of modern dance history, including Alwin Nikolais’ seminal work Noumenon, Claudia Gitelman’s Impromptu, and Lynn Needle’s excerpts from HEAVEN and EARTH – a creation myth, based on The Secret Life of Plants. The arc of the evening takes the audience through a visual and sculptural feast for the eyes that celebrates abstraction, nature, beauty, legend, and dance as an art form. The concert unfolds with interludes of spoken text by Needle giving each solo context and includes elaborate costuming, jeweled masks, deconstructed modernism, and a multi-media component with a kaleidoscopic film.
