“Living Room Stories”
Choreography: Katherine House
Music: Various songs by Library Tapes
Growing up is HARD. Living Room Stories explores adolescence, and specifically the experience of my own teenage years. The difficult moments that play a huge role into forming who we become as adults can get buried in our consciousness; I know there are parts of my coming of age story that I've tried to forget. This work delves into what happens when we un-bury and dig up the memories that tried to lock themselves away in our brain.
Choreography: Kelisha Gardeen
Music: Original recordings created by the choreographer
A duet inspired by my relationship with my twin sister along the lines of struggling to discover our own identities as we grew. It can transcend to really any relationship in life - i.e. relationships that kind of make you question what it is that you actually truly want (as opposed to following the wants and desires of someone else).
Choreography: Frankie Rivera
Music: Johann Johannsson
Dancers: Catherine Hsu, Dani Galvez and Jesse Egbert
No one is angrier than a woman who has been rejected in love. This proverb is adapted from a line in the play The Mourning Bride, by William Congreve, an English author of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries.
Choreography: Domonic Duong
