FringeArts – Kyle Marshall Choreography: Stellar / Rise
September 24 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
One event on September 25, 2021 at 8:00 pm
Stellar is a dance film of speculative fiction inspired by afro-futures, the echoes of jazz, and the stars within us. Performers Bree Breeden, Kyle Marshall, and Ariana Speight gathered for virtual improvisation sessions during the second spring of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Online conversations led to in-studio embodiment, where they developed scores of improvisation and theatricality informed by gravity, ritual, and planets. The film features an original score inspired by the transcendent music of Sun Ra and Alice Coltrane, performed by Kwami Winfield.
Rise is inspired by the shout traditions of the Black church, the transcendence of club music, and holds the joy that dancing brings to our lives. This dance—performed live by four dancers—celebrates life in our flesh, makes space for the spirit, and honors the power of witnessing by reflecting on our time of pandemic isolation.
Rise performers: Bree Breeden, Kyle Marshall, Jose Lapaz-Rodriguez, and Ariana Speight
