Untitled Work for Voice // Danspace Project

February 22, 2018 at 8:00 am - February 24, 2018 at 9:00 pm

| $15 - $22

Choreographer and composer Tatyana Tenenbaum explores the phenomenal space of the singing body. Untitled Work for Voice is a backstage musical; a show about a show whose production is never seen in completion. Five performers breathe sound and form into space, causing histories and narratives to appear and rupture. Singing bodies give way to vibration, unraveling the tightly choreographed music of American desire.

Tenenbaum asks: “If we are the inheritors of white America–with our interwoven histories of coercion, direct compliance, and passive complicity– then are we capable of embodying a narrative, which acknowledges genocide, enslavement, dominance and appropriation as a basis for everything we know? What would this feel and sound like? How can we implicate our cultural patterns of yearning, catharsis, and individualism in order to forge an illicit future? This multifaceted ‘theater of the singing body’ searches for a new expressive landscape.”

Music, Choreography, and Direction by Tatyana Tenenbaum, in collaboration with Marisa ClementiPareena LimEmily Moore, and Jules Skloot
