The Theater at Gibney
January 30 - February 1, $15-$20, 8:00
Women in Motion and the Bang Group will present their latest Pop Performance this week at Gibney, consisting of specially commissioned works by female or female-identifying choreographers. Founded in 2000, WIM “offers female artists the opportunity to show work-in-progress in a supportive, intimate setting, intended to create a dialogue between artists and audiences.” The Centaur Show, by the duo asubtout (Katy Pyle and Eleanor Hullihan), is described as a “nouveau New Age fantasy death metal poperetta.” Pyle and Hullihan return to their 2007 original to explore how the world has changed in the last thirteen years. Rebecca Stenn’s The Oak and the Willow is like a painting come to life onstage, a duet danced by Stenn and Quinn Dixon, with live music by Jay Weissman on electric bass. And Same as Sister’s Kallax features a Sámi protagonist at IKEA, with Kristina Hay, Leigh Atwell, Hilary Brown-Istrefi, Briana Brown-Tipley, and Jamie Robinson in a work that examines celebrity and consumer culture. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.
