LMnO3 presents "BANGS – made in America"
As part of Dance Now’s new ENCORE series, the collaborative trio LMnO3 (Deborah Lohse, Cori Marquis, and Donnell Oakley) returns to Joe’s Pub with its acclaimed work B.A.N.G.S.: made in America, a kaleidoscopic pageant of status, attention, categorization, and femininity. Shape¬-shifting in style and identity¬¬, the dancers explore what they are—and aren’t—qualified to do. Serious play and creative instincts rule as the trio obsesses over the ideas behind B.A.N.G.S., a mnemonic device frequently used by French-language learners to remember which adjectives go in front of a noun: Beauty, Age, Number, Goodness, and Size. Utilizing hard rap, body percussion, a game show, and the power of female relationships, this comedic trio sets aside its own fear and doubt, beginning to repurpose how we can unapologetically wear our own B.A.N.G.S.
