The Making of Statues

The Making of Statues (2010 – 2012): A 30-minute multimedia performance with six dancers, Tara Burns, Diana Deaver, Katie Stehura, Robin Neveu Brown, Meg Weeks, and Rebecca Woods performed throughout NYC. Amidst projected stars, clouds, fire, and one enormous moon, the dancer playfully slide, hop, and reach. Wistful glances build into rebellious attempts at running and climbing and resolve in flexed and angular unison movement. Hands clenching into fists reaching for the swords at their sides, the dancers represent a unified feminine war cry. Their fate in history is sealed in stone whether constellations or statues.
