Embracing Fluid Disruptions
Edge is an incubation residency and commissioning program for contemporary choreographers whose work is deeply curious about the intersection of art practice and social change
This year’s resident artists include Stephanie Hewett embracing the multidimensionality of pleasure in /soft/c/. This work uses various interpretations of contemporary dance forms to create critical musings on fluidity, intimacy, queer futurity, blackness, and power by examining the contrasts of marginalized bodies against hegemonic constructs.
Next, Kim Ip/Krimm’s Dance Party brings us ceremonious present, a story of two womxns’ sexual awakening through investigating Asian womxn ancestry in America and more specifically the Bay Area. The work excavates cultural rejections of sexuality, and unveils one person’s desire to be transposed upon two bodies.
