SOLD OUT, tickets for Sunday still available. "This room this braid" premieres, a new work by choreographer devynn emory. Commissioned as part of ISSUE’s Artist-In-Residence program, the piece features devynn emory joined by dancer Aretha Aoki, with sound by Ryan MacDonald, and sets by painter RJ Messineo.
Artist-in-Residence devynn emory in conversation with Marissa Perel on working with untrained performers, the voice, identity as subject matter, and emory's multiple permutations of dance composition.
devynn emory, known for structured, formal, and spatially detailed dances, presents a semi-collaborative text piece with vocalist Margot Bassett: a collision of emory's formal movement structure, pushing away from the body and through the mouth to create hyper composed sounds.
