Dancemakers’ Curator Amelia Ehrhardt is pleased to announce Resident Artist Andrea Spaziani’s Silver Venus will make its première at Dancemakers Centre for Creation from Thursday, April 26 to Saturday, April 28, 2018, at 8 pm each evening.
Now in her second year of a three-year residency, Andrea’s group work Silver Venus played as a work-in-progress to sell out houses and audience acclaim in April 2017. Her work is feminist and critical of the aestheticized female body, and it moves across poles like personal/political, vulnerable/powerful, didactic/impenetrable. Her Dancemakers’ residency to date has also seen her present This Desiring Pony (December 2016) and Rafters (June 2017).
The Dance Current said, ”Andrea Spaziani generates a performance situation that holds itself open in its complexity, never indulging catharsis or didactic resolution… [Her] work stands with that of a generation of (mostly female) contemporary dance artists who desire and romanticize a post-dramatic context, rejecting performativity and institutionalized expectations of male choreographic gazes.”
Silver Venus is created and performed with Irvin Chow, Alicia Grant, Julia Male, Claire Turner Reid, Nicole Rose Bond, with Lights by Tanya Bregstein, and Music by Matt Smith.
