Two of Ouramdane’s longtime collaborators —Lora Juodkaite and Annie Hanauer— perform lonely solos in a haunting duet. Intensely physical performances of hypnotic, whirling gestures foreground the specificity of each woman’s body as she paints a raw, captivating self-portrait. Compelling in its repetition, Ouramdane’s choreography pushes the performers to find the gesture that makes them who they are.
Before the October 15 performance Rachid Ouramdane joins arts leaders from both sides of the Atlantic to share strategies for effecting change in a panel discussion at 5pm. Part of Bridging: A French-American Dialogue on Diversity and Inclusion in the Arts, an initiative supported by The Edmond de Rothschild Foundations.
