Alexandra Bodnarchuk presents Rock, Paper, Scissors (RPS) – Virtual Edition, an evening-length contemporary dance duet filmed and edited by Tamara Ober, available April 14-May 12!
From the audience:
“The performers were marvelous, individually and together. I believed because they believed.”
“Honestly, I thought about the show for a week.”
“Star dance was tender and so special and cried from laughing at the 40 stitches bit.”
About the work:
RPS explores the generational passing down of rules and customs of our bodies. What traditions do we choose to pass down? Which rules will we break?
Situated on a set comprised of a floor and two opposing walls, Alexandra uses text, play, and contemporary phrase work to draw inspiration from her heritage and create a surreal playground of problem-solving.
This work features dancers Nieya Amezquita and Sarah McCullough, sound design by Brandon Anderson Musser, with directorial and dramaturgical support by Marcela Michelle.
This work has been supported in part by the Ann and Weston Hicks Choreography Fellowship at Jacob’s Pillow under the direction of Dianne McIntyre and Risa Steinberg, and mentorship of Andrea Miller and Abby Zbikowski.
