Genre: Modern

"On/Off" is a collaboration between Holly Heidt (movement) and Asha Tamirisa (sound) with help from the dancers. The two became good friends and collaborators at Oberlin College and are delighted to continue working with each other. The piece is influenced by a joint fascination with minimalistic art (along the lines of Sol Lewitt and Ellsworth Kelly) and by simple actions and cycles in the physical world: clocks ticking, heartbeats, spilled water, waves. An endless factory line. Sysiphus carrying his rock up the hill again and again. Can certain experiences be seen as circles? Pendulums? Sine curves? These examples suggest a continuity, an alternation and repetition of elements. On the other hand, they may also suggest The End. Things and people come together and fall away. There is separation and loss. Things break down beyond repair.

"excerpt hearts" is a thought exploration of what the performers know of and have experienced of lesbian stereotypes. everything from the music we're playing to the lyrics to the how we interact with each other will incorporate what we have pre-decided is somehow an abstracted stereotype of our lesbian past lives.

Featuring niv Acosta and Jules Skloot.
