*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
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!
