FringeArts – Ashlea Sovetts & Alexandria Nunweiler: 10 Recalling-20
September 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm$25.00
Come watch, 10 Recalling-20, a choreographic duet inspired by stories collected from individuals’ experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The COVID-19 virus has caused a worldwide pause, forcing people to sit with the unknown. During this reflection period, the idea arose to create a dance work about how other individuals’ lives have been affected by this virus.
Although COVID-19 is the overarching theme, it’s the stories from the individuals that are the true inspiration for 10 Recalling-20. The interviewees for the project are representatives of various age groups and diverse backgrounds.
For example, Lennon is a 4 year old girl who takes dance lessons and loves tickling her two brothers. Dillon is a 25 year old pilot who enjoys advocating for LGBTQ+ youth in Columbus, Ohio. Vena is a 30 year old Oklahomina travel nurse who has treated COVID-19 patients in Massachusetts and California. Aaron is a 31 year old black police officer working in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Jilla is a 53 year old Persian woman who is a restaurant owner and chef. Anita was an 85 year old grandmother and book enthusiast originally from Brooklyn, New York.
Come see the dance work combining stories from different human experiences in how people cope during an unprecedented time. The work strives to create real connections in hopes of growing a community of understanding and compassion to build a collective response based on personal reflections. This project aims to serve audience members from all age ranges and populations.
Afterwards, partake in a Q+A discussion about the process of making the work, the stories involved in the creating and share ideas to push the work further.
