PROX:IMITY RE:MIX & NIGHT
Two dance companies two dance shows
PROX:IMITY RE:MIX is the culmination of a 2-week process in which contemporary dance company MACHiNENOiSY offers skill building in dance, theatre and new media and highlights the unique identities and talents of local youth (ages 15-24). Our late teens and early 20s are often a time of uncertainty and self-identification. We struggle to figure out who we are, who we want to be and how we can embody that to the world. PROX:IMITY RE:MIX is a physical dialogue that explores notions of gender and identity using the human body as an instrument to challenge the roles it has traditionally represented. These ideas are explored through a setting that combines technology, new media and music. Instead of focusing on the limits of body and gender, PROX:IMITY RE:MIX reminds us of what our bodies are capable of when freed from traditional expectations.
As night falls, another world awakens. With less light, even more of our inner selves is revealed. The innate fear of darkness is quelled by a fearlessness to try new things, to act on our impulses and express our desires.
“NIGHT’ explores universal aspects of life after dark – the freedom, the fun and the fears built into the cultural fabric of our society. the work is edgy, highly physical and very much today.
