"...these false realities that make us have this extra emotional junk..." - Kate Wallich on the internet and Splurge Land Apr 1, 2015

by Erin

The Stranger previews Splurge Land:

Kate Wallich's Splurge Land also approaches the subject of personal freedom, with a focus on a very different demographic. "Splurge Land is about the sad undertones and subtext of the post-internet generation," says Wallich. "I find the relationships that people have with the internet to be so sad; there are all these false realities that make us have this extra emotional junk.

*City Arts goes behind the scenes with choreographer Kate Wallich:

In the final days of 2014, Kate Wallich posted a selfie on Instagram: she and her sister clutching keg cups and wearing sunglasses and lipstick. Exuding youth, beauty and glamour, the two blondes look like they could be at a party in New York or LA. In reality they were in their hometown of Tecumseh, Mich.

In Wallich’s world, it’s what’s behind the image that counts. The 25-year-old choreographer’s latest work, Splurge Land, premieres at On the Boards next month, digging into the cultural phenomenon of social media and prying out the issues that lurk beneath the surface.

It’s hard not to be won over by phrases...
