Deborah Slater Dance Theater - Studio 210 Residency 2017

Studio 210 Residency 2017 (2017)
Summer residency


Sarah Cecilia | Don’t Be Dainty
13th Floor | Tiger & Otter

DSDT's Studio 210 Summer Residency is thrilled to be supporting 13th Floor and Sarah Cecilia this summer!
Join us on July 28 & 29 for DSDT's 6th Summer Residency Showings. Both evenings will be followed by a conversation with the artists and with choreographer Deborah Slater, and will be held at Studio 210 Theater.
Sarah Cecilia's work, Don’t Be Dainty, is a personal exploration of identity through movement, text, and music. Where does identity originate, and how does the relationship to self change with time and experience? Does movement express identity, or does identity create movement?

13th Floor - Tiger & Otter. Two people wake up entangled in an embrace, on the floor of a public library. They don’t remember who they are and have no idea how they arrived. Through narrative text, movement, and audience immersion, this piece explores questions of identity – from a psychological standpoint, as well as a literary and theatrical one. How many types of identities are there, really?
Sarah Cecilia is a classically trained, creatively inclined dancer and movement artist. She is currently a senior dancer and collaborator with Amy Seiwert’s Imagery and was nominated for Isadora Duncan Dance Awards as an individual performer in 2012 and 2016 for her work with Imagery. Sarah enjoys collaborating with artists, filmmakers, photographers, musicians, and technological engineers to break new ground in dance through interdisciplinary communication.

13th Floor creates thoughtful, darkly comic theater that won’t hold still. Their work explores the unlikely spaces where humor intersects with horror, the magical overlaps with the everyday, & movement of all kinds wraps itself around the spoken word. With original & unexpected storylines, they bring audiences on a wild ride through thought-provoking subject matter dipped in a mixture of quirky, off-beat humor & hope. They want audiences to leave the theater thinking, conversing, & somehow changed by what they just saw.

The 210 Studio Residency, now in its 6th year, is an experiment in supporting Bay Area artists in need of space to make their work. In these lean times for the arts, DSDT is happy to be able to make a rare offer of rehearsal space, performance opportunities, peer support and professional feedback from Artistic Director and Choreographer Deborah Slater.
