A release-based technique class with Katherine
Kiefer Stark / The Naked StarkBlending Kline Technique, Safety Release
Technique, and release technique, Katherine's class is an energetic
exploration of movement from the inside out. Emphasis is placed
on the initiation of the movement and the path the various body parts take
in space to discover how one's own body moves within the movement. We
embrace the space through phrases that move in and out of the floor and
carry us in and out of balance. Class begins quietly and gradually builds
in complexity, culminating in a dynamic phrase. Sleeves and knee-pads or
long pants are recommended.*

*The Naked Stark presents​ Visible Structures*
at *Mascher Space Cooperative May 17 - 20, 2018*

Visible Structures, a dance trilogy, examines the age-old story of the
hero’s journey as a historical construction and pop-culture phenomenon.
Drawing from research into heroic and emergent leader narrative films (like
“Ender’s Game” and “The Matrix”), personal experiences, and Joseph
Campbell’s book “Hero with a Thousand Faces”, the work presents the status
quo of the story and deconstructs the conceptual frameworks within it.

Dynamic momentum-based phrasing propels dancers through narrative
structures, power struggles, and oppressive systems. Shifting between
choreographically predetermined outcomes and actual free-for-all
competition, dancers struggle with each other and vie for attention from
the audience.

Katherine Kiefer Stark's choreography is complemented with unique lighting
and environmental design along with a sound score of movie soundtracks and
original music composed by Andy Thierauf.

Featuring eight dancers and three unique Episodes, Visible Structures takes
the audience on a journey and begs the question: Is this the story we want
to keep telling?

Don’t miss this epic modern dance adventure!
