Wednesday, April 5, 8:00 p.m.
In partnership with Dance Place
Sacred Profane engages women of diverse ages, cultures and ethnicities to create an all-encompassing feminist work, at times delving into human rights issues and at times celebrating the irreverent joy of sisterhood. Using music composition by Jeffrey Dorfman coupled with pop songs and classical music, Sacred Profane skirts the boundaries of risk-taking. With special interest in the subjects of performativity, colonialism, orientalism, Occidentalism, femininity and feminist culture, Rebollar Dance presents manifestations of women as subject vs. object.
The all-women cast combines backgrounds in various dance genres and viewpoints as Rebollar Dance collaborates with a punk rock dance band, South Asian Performing Arts Network (SAPAN), Somapa Thai Dance Company and guest artists Heather Doyle and Annemarie Clark.
