Wrecking 1: Susan Rethorst residency event
14:00:00 - 17:00:00
1714 North Mascher Street
Philadelphia, PA 19122
This event with Big Dance Theater at fidgetspace will consist of an informal showing, short process, then another showing.
“Wrecking” is a process where Rethorst invites in another choreographer to work with her in-progress piece. She wrote: “He [Tere O’Connor] entered into the rehearsal process and looked at the piece as though it was to become his from that moment forward, changing it to his liking, imposing his own aesthetic with complete disregard for my intentions. I then took back the rehearsals, with the same attitude toward his changes…akin to culture shock; disorienting, the center of gravity shifted.”
This event is part of Bryn Mawr College Performing Arts Series' Susan Rethorst: Inquiring Mind/Choreographic Mind, supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
