Brooklyn, NY - Triskelion Arts presents Becky Radway Dance Projects in A strange set of attachments, an original multimedia work for four live dancers and over 125 special guests in the video projection. With large helpings of heart and humor, this new production points a finger at our natural idiosyncrasies, both deliberate and unintentional. Our clothes, our body language, and how we choose to act in any given situation say a lot about the character we present to the world. These tiny personal choices are highlighted throughout, molded into athletic movement phrases, intimate partnering, and quirky theatrics. By altering the live and recorded environments with shifting video backdrops and an arsenal of costumes, A strange set of attachments draws out and illuminates what makes us… well, us.
A strange set of attachments also features dancers Jessi Patz (of Big Apple Lindy Hoppers, Adele Myers and Dancers, and Ground Grippers Dance Company), Erica Moshman (of Heidi Latsky Dance), and Heather N. Seagraves (of Amalgamate Dance Company), as well as original music by Scott Radway (of the bands Now Soon Nowhere and Polkadot Cadaver, and recently nominated for a Best Soundtrack award in the Terror Film Festival in Philadelphia), and lighting design by Andrew Dickerson (of Cirque This).
Becky Radway Dance Projects has been featured at Food For Thought at Danspace Project, Fridays at Noon at the 92nd Street Y, the DUMBO and Cool New York Festivals, the Uptown Arts Stroll, Take Root at Green Space, and the Evon Arts' Coming Together Performance Series at Alvin Ailey's Citigroup Theater.
