STAGE MAMA DRAMA
Imagine a swarm of stage moms primping your hair, pinching your cheeks, and powdering your nose while handing you a baton and strapping ballet slippers on your feet (Sheet music! Where the hell is the sheet music?!). Thats a little bit of the frantic razzle-dazzle you should expect from the premiere of RedShift Dances Its not like we cant dress her up in fishnets and tell her what to do, a satirical JonBenét-meets-Heathers dance-theater piece about pushy stage mothers and the pressures of early stardom. The program, co-directed by longtime friends and collaborators Kelly Hayes and Katy Orthwein, also features the premiere of Dissolving Anchor, a multimedia piececomposed by Cynthia Hopkins and filmmaker Janusz Jaworskiabout the struggles of attachment and letting go, and Wonder (a brand new dance), a bubble-filled piece about the joys of dishwashing, set to David Bowies naughty Little Wonder.
