*Performance 'Aprés moi, l'obscurtié'*
*by Paige Phillips*


*'Aprés moi, l'obscurité' *(After me, the darkness) is a contemporary dance
by Paige Phillips in collaboration with a cast of three female performers.
It will run from January 26-27 at Mascher Space Cooperative. The work
examines a myriad of social and political injustices that women have been
forced to endure. By incorporating aesthetic and contextual references from
the Renaissance, mid-century, and today's pop-culture, the content lays
witness to the longevity of such indignities. A wild ride of vignettes
feature sexually anthropomorphic horses, Francisco Goya's depictions of
witchcraft, and contrived frivolity, amounting to a bold rejection for
nostalgic ideals of purity and femininity.
