A stage layered with detritus.
Cocktail dresses and high heels.
Feminine ancestry & family history.
Uneasy vaudeville married to explosive physicality.
Five fearless women with a palpable rage boiling below the surface. Indefatigable dance legend Pat Graney returns to the OtB stage with an unsettling journey into the collective feminine unconscious.
Featuring dancers Sara Jinks, Sruti Desai, Cheryl Delostrinos, Jenny May Peterson, and Jody Kuehner; composer/musician Amy Denio; and lighting designer Amiya Brown.
Choreographer Pat Graney has been making award-winning performance for decades. A recent winner of a Doris Duke Performing Artist award, she often explores female identity and power, taking movement inspiration from ballet to gymnastics to martial arts to slapstick. Graney is also well-known for her community initiatives working with incarcerated women and trafficked teens in the Seattle school system. She is an international and local treasure and was last seen at OtB with her work Faith Tryptich which is now available to watch at OntheBoards.tv.
Girl Gods is co-commissioned by OtB, Montclair State University, and Miami Light Project through the National Performance Network. Girl Gods is supported by the OtB Performance Production Program.
