About This Show
Spoken Motion: An evening of danced poetry
by choreographer Katrina M Phillip
“Where have all the poets gone?” Choreographer Katrina M Phillip, moved by the death of poet Maya Angelou challenges a group of dancers by prompting them to use poetry as the driving force of storytelling and creating movement. 10 NYC poets, 8 composers, and 7 dancers come together to create an evening where words and stories come to life.
The Best Time I Broke My Arm
The Best Time I Broke My Arm is a humorous exploration of trauma, recovery, boredom, narcotics, and endless hours of Netflix. It could be described as “fictional autobiographical storytelling”- a genre Jill Hockett may have just created. With the advent of easy-access streaming entertainment, our lives are no longer simply defined by the things that happen to us, but the interplay between our most charged life events and the media we consume. InThe Best Time I Broke My Arm, Jill channels indelible characters who, like Jill, feel both thwarted and liberated by their environments.
