Excessive

 

Choreographic Score and Performance by Alana Stubbs

 

This project was inspired by a walk I had with my dog. I was walking around the streets of Boston and saw broken glass, plastic bags, crumpled up face masks, cigarette butts, empty fast-food containers, soggy pants, and a whole pizza crust. The number of objects that were scattered about the sidewalk perplexed me. This one moment then led me down a rabbit hole of thoughts on how much junk litters both our physical environments and our mental spaces. We live in a world that has much more waste than is healthy and people, including myself, suffer from this more than we realize. We all deserve to live in clean environments and have un-muddled thoughts. I hope that this piece will inspire people to clean up junk from both their physical environments and their mental spaces.

A journey of self-discovery and meaning of the self. We dive into a deep personal human journey, offering a perspective on our conceptions of self and identity. On stage, the two sides of one being meet. Together, they will reach their completion, well... maybe?

Something Up Her Sleeve

 

Performance and Score by Amy Diane Morrow

Vocals by Sabrina Reitman

Conversation while Dancing by Amy Diane Morrow and Lloyd Weatherspoon

Music by David Quick, Leoncarlo Canlas (Fri) and Boss Street (Sat)

 

I’d give you the shirt off my back

But I’ve got something up my sleeve

If another one bites the dust

I can’t help you get up

 

I can’t help you get up

Stop pulling my leg

I can’t help you get up

Can you pull my leg, I'm stuck

 

When another one’s down

And nothing’s up my sleeve

I know that I know that I know

I know that you’ll stand by me

Hurt Under Pressure

 

Performance by Denver

Vocals and Guitar by David Quick

Musical arrangment of Hurt by Johnny Cash and Under Pressure by Queen

 

Life is about the redistribution of energy. We often focus on the deaths of the unhoused. We often forget to celebrate the lifes and those who transition into housing. This is about two sides of the same coin and we have to look at the whole coin. Will you use your voice? There's people in the streets. This is ourselves under pressure.
