SOLA - Women Dancing, Women Making - at Tisch Department of Dance
6 Women from all over the country take the stage performing solo work. We came together as professionals to tour this solo concert in each others city and our last stop is in New York City.
Where we are in our careers and personal lives come together for one evening to share the evening as a group yet singly dance in the space.
The name of the show, Sola, translates from Spanish to “woman alone,” which is what each piece will feature: a solo choreographed by its dancer.
...[Andee] Scott said she started the project after noticing how male-dominant the dance industry has become and is hoping Sola will give women like herself some time alone in the spotlight.“It’s a political statement highlighting and emphasizing the work of women,” Scott said. “But on another side it’s also just about really good dance. It’s a platform for women...I think that art is necessary, so any opportunity that we have to see it, we should grab,” Scott said. “Art makes us better people, and dance can access our humanity.” -USF Oracle
