"pant legses of the Universe" by Erin Malley
EMMA JASTER AND ERIN MALLEY
After 12 years of creating multimedia dance performances, Malley stepped into filmmaking last year. Now, she re-investigates the choreographic process using the tools of filmmaking, treating each step of the choreographic process as though it were a film. Her new work "pant legses of the Universe" explores split, broken or divided personas. What would it look like for one person to inhabit a multiverse with all versions present to the viewer simultaneously?
"Keeper of My Heart's Odd Secrets" by Emma Jaster
Why do we still get married, and what does it mean to do so? Perhaps the simplest answer, love, is in fact the most complex. "Keeper of My Heart's Odd Secrets" is a piece about love and partnership the myths, tropes, jokes, and truths It blends theater, dance, audio installation and party games: arranged like an actual wedding ceremony; guests are invited in as friends and family to witness a marriage. The ceremony draws on strange customs and accepted traditions, questioning and playing with them along the way.
