Inaugural Home Season

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Thursday-Saturday, April 4-6 at 8 pm

Amy Foley's Bellwether Dance Project creates dance works through a feminist lens, often fascinated by the experiences of girls and women and the concepts of time and meaning-making. For this Inaugural Home Season, Foley presents: world premieres "Let Slip the Witches" and "First Love, in 3 Parts", Foley's 2016 work "Thighs and Wages" and a world premiere solo choreographed for Foley by Robert Moses, in whose company she danced for over ten years.

In "Let Slip the Witches," Foley explores the cultural phenomenon of the pervasive, seemingly intensified feminist association with the concept of witch. "The witch has long stood as a symbol of oppression and freedom," Foley explains. "In the renewed fascination with witchery also lies a strong sense of sisterhood and a return to the elemental, to the female, to nature, as well as implications of cunning, intuition and resistance."

The trio "First Love, in 3 Parts," created in collaboration with performers Tanya Bello and Nol Simonse, is in part a reflection on the considerable joys and pitfalls inherent in a life of art-making, as well as a statement about age.

Moses' as yet untitled piece is structured as part improvisation score, part set material, and is based on the writings by both artists about presence, parenthood, personhood and dance.

"Thighs and Wages" addresses the experience of being a woman in the world. The title alludes to the terms "thigh gap" and "wage gap" -- two concepts whose definitions shine a light on an accepted cultural paradigm of objectification and undervaluing of women. As Foley explains, the quintet Thighs and Wages, "looks at ways that women are scrutinized and objectified and how turning someone into an object lessens their humanness."

The dancers of Bellwether Dance Project are Foley, Shareen DeRyan, Kaitlyn Ebert, Kelsey Gerber, Caitlin Hicks, Elena Martins, Karla Quintero and Juliann Witt.
