Stefanie Batten Bland | Company SBB
“Batten Bland artfully paints emotional tableaus with her impressive dancers, beautifully utilizing props—simple tables— to emphasize their struggles with contemporary relationships.”—Christine Jowers, The Dance Enthusiast
Stefanie Batten Bland creates performance at the intersection of dance-theater and installation, questioning contemporary and historical cultural symbolism and the complexities of human relationships. Inspired by the 1967 Stanley Kramer film starring Sydney Poitier, Katherine Hepburn, and Spencer Tracy, Look Who’s Coming to Dinner pays tribute to those who paved the way toward acceptance in love and life. Set around a transformative dinner setting, seven dance-theatre artists excavate interlaced universal traumas through imagery and ritual as they seek a seat at the table.
