Event Description

Take Root presents Proteo Media + Performance and Meghan Frederick/Practice Project

Proteo Media + Performance: In Orbicular, Breeanah Breeden and Kathleen Kelley investigate how their actual differences in generations (early twenties and mid-thirties), in race (black and white), in economic power (freelance dancer and choreographer/professor), and in dance training (hip-hop/ballet and release technique) work together to produce visual and creative tension. These differences are evoked, navigated, and subverted to challenge conventional hierarchical patterns. Orbicular instead develops multilayered relationships between the performers themselves and between the performers and the audience's expectations of identity and power. It features aggressively physical dancing and emotional gestural exchange, and is supported by an original music score and film projections designed by the performers. Orbicular was created during a 2016 LIEMAY fellowship.

Meghan Frederick/Practice Project: SOFT BLUE conjures a space where the fragile lines between truth and fantasy are blurred and broken. With each moment counted and accounted for, three women practice performances of togetherness, misremember choreographies, and re/present images of femininity. Dancing through SOFT BLUE reveals the construction and collapse of physical and psychological realities, illuminating cracks through which possibilities for magic emerge. SOFT BLUE is performed by Meghan Frederick, Carlye Eckert, and Elisa Davis and features an original score by Trevor Wilson.
