Susan Marshall: Play/Pause
Start Date: 2/14/2014Start Time: 8:00 PM
End Date: 2/14/2014End Time: 10:00 PM
Event Description:

Play/Pause is an evening-length work for six dancers set to an original score by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang performed live by members of the groundbreaking electric-guitar quartet Dither.

In Play/Pause, Marshall ignores the distinction between high art and pop culture and embraces their collisions. Popular dance forms and indie rock music are the undercurrent for an exploration of the distance and intimacy inherent in our consumption of pop culture. Marshall builds on the vocabulary of popular video dance by introducing complex structures and unfamiliar contexts, exploring questions about our obsession with celebrity and creating a world in which movement, touch, and breath speak as loudly as the hyperreal and the larger than life. Cut across by a vocabulary of rock-guitar riffs and popular dance moves, this work is the ultimate mash-up: Postmodern dance-theater meets rock ’n’ roll on both real and virtual stages.

Free and open to the public.
