Choreographed by Gabriela Grant
Grant’s project explores how black and brown female bodies have been commodified and appropriated throughout history. She examines their femininity and masculinity and how this contributes to their commodification. The work primarily uses African and urban movement forms, such as vogueing, heels, hip hop choreography, to express this, but also incorporates elements of spoken word and live music. Her work resists the sexual objectification of Black women and instead highlights their strength through varied forms of vernacular movement.
Champagne Party for Time Travelers
Written and Choreographed by Sydney Lemelin and Hana Huie
This piece is based on the real party that famed physicist Stephen Hawking threw for time travelers, for which he sent invitations after the party ended. Lemelin and Huie combine theater and dance to explore the journey of believing in things that do not exist and pursuing what is important to us, however insignificant we may be in the universe.
Free, tickets required. Tickets are available on The Clarice website or at the box office one week before opening night.
