Brooklyn, NY – Triskelion Arts is pleased to present a shared program featuring innovative companies, Quentin Burley Dance Group and Danté Brown|Warehouse Dance, this Winter in the Muriel Schulman Theater.
Quentin Burley Dance Group premieres two new works. A solo performed by Quentin Burley investigates the small, understated bodily quirks that sway social interaction. Filled with flourished movement and intimate expression, this solo investigates self-awareness and challenges tropes of performance. Also premiering is a trio performed by Myssi Robinson, Emma Rumberg, and Lynda Senisi exploring intricacy in dynamic movement. Set to a vast backdrop of music, this analytical piece examines highly physical movement and the ability of sound to dramatically change context and meaning.
Danté Brown/Warehouse Dance presents Soapbox, examining what it means to “have a voice” and its association with power. Focusing on augmenting the bodily languages of American politicians and popular music artists, Soapbox questions who is allowed on these platforms of power and examines how we, as a culture, respond.
