Description

Performance: Thursday November 1,2,3 at 8 pm, November 4 at 2:30 pm

Presented by ANNONYArts at Satori, Smashworks Dance Collective of New York City premieres FOR WHICH IT STANDS, an evening length political work featuring original sound score and projection installation by choreographer Ashley McQueen. Consisting of 9 episodic dances that seamlessly blend humor and reality, this work uses themes ripped from the headlines to satirize the Trump Administration and invites audiences to confront the contradictions of modern political discourse, tear down the walls that divide our country, and reject the normalization of nonsense.

Met with glowing reviews and standing ovations, FOR WHICH IT STANDS made its world premiere at the Center for Performance Research in Brooklyn this past spring, and was featured in Time Out New York, Brokelyn Magazine, and the Dance Enthusiast. Also on the program is "Refusing to be disposed," a multi-disciplinary installation McQueen created as part of her Hollins University Master's Thesis.

Dance Workshop: Saturday Novemeber 3, 10am - Noon at Satori

Join Smashworks Dance for a 2 hour workshop that fuses classical modern techniques, improvisational structures, and the athletic and musically-driven style of the New York-based company. Dancers begin with a technical warm-up in the center, intermixed with improvisational moments that allow students to test physical boundaries while focusing on intention and dynamics. Class progresses with phrase work from FOR WHICH IT STANDS, and gives dancers space for variation, improvisation, and physical contact. Finishing off with an open dialogue, this workshop invites the group to reflect on their experiences within their movement research, and question how we can integrate political action with performance.
