Works: Mantises Are Flipping W.3
Mantises are Flipping (2015) 5-10 Dancers 56 Minutes (Shorter Selections Available)
Mantises Are Flipping W.3 explores duality through movement. The work begins as an interactive journey through an imaginative world of movement and sound, where audience can cultivate new discoveries in the nature of opposites and intricately changing psychological states. This interaction leads into the dancers’ internal journeys amongst private moments of isolation, small group interactions, and envelopment into the whole. Euphoria, excitement, focus, frustration, and persistence are communicated through highly physical to vaguely indicated partnerships, and juxtaposition of rhythm, harmony, and dissonance.
