FringeArts – OhOK Performance Group: shared spaces | distant voices
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until October 4, 2021
“Now and Not Yet” by Whitney Casal –
It was a constant rearranging:
Of her thoughts,
And none of the configurations made sense,
But at least they made space.
“Transition” by Sofi Seta –
“Transition” proposes to reach the world of dreams and nightmares as a representation of contradictions, fears, and struggles as human species. In this dream universe, what happens when I can listen, but I can’t move? or talk? What happens in the body when I sleep and wake up in another dimension? That transition that leaves us thinking and how dreams act being a source of subconscious information, powerful and even terrifying.
“June” by Anna Rose –
June is a solo work that explores female lineage and the societally prescribed role of women in the home and within the family structure. Delving into the personal stories and lives of my own mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, I engage with the physically and vocally embodied concepts of passed-down ancestral trauma, and internalized sexism. Shifts in music and costume bring the viewer back to different eras in a non-linear fashion, like memories surfacing from a multi-generational female past. June is a month, a woman, a dance, a story. June is for all of the women who have been silenced, erased, confined to a life they did not choose or want.
“Act Natural” by Britt Davis –
I present you with a quarter-life synopsis, which is as clear as an oxymoron – opposite ends of the linguistic spectrum joining together in a nonsensical, sense-making statement. It’s a serious boss-lady infused with comic relief. It’s liberation with a side of leftover fear. It’s over-dramatic, yet in its own right. It’s flirtatiously blended with brutal sarcasm. It’s sexy mixed with the comedic greatness of Lucille Ball. It’s a statement of a 20-something female-identifying international person of the 2020s trying to find some frickin’ balance.
