PREMIERE: Daughter of the Deer (Mesa)

January 19, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm MST


This project is an original work of dance-theatre for solo performer, video, and sound, exploring the media construction of female identity and authenticity in the wake of #MeToo. We are thinking about who is trustworthy and which experiences are acceptable. About the distance between victim and perpetrator. About Asia Argento. About sanity, insanity, and being trapped between the two. About Medea and Andrea Yates, who drowned their children. About witch trials. We’re thinking about Christine Blasey Ford and Anita Hill, and who gets a fair shake. Building off the work done by documentary filmmaker, Trinh T. Minh-ha, to outline the aesthetic code of “objectivity,” our piece visually explores the subtle language that communicates who and what we’re supposed to believe. In the process, it uncovers the troubled relationship between art and journalism and questions whether either can ever really tell the truth.

This project was created through a Studio/LAB Residency with nueBOX

Created by former members of Orange Theatre, the piece continues our exploration into developing a new performance style combining live theatre, dance, film, architecture, music, and sound into a hybrid of live and mediated experiences that challenge audiences to engage with complex issues of gender, sexuality, race, justice, story, and truth that define our contemporary world.
