But the OB.ject.ob.JECT series wants to change all that, offering female choreographers greater opportunities to show what they’ve got. Tonight, catch Vanessa Justice Dance’s latest work, Noise’sNoise, which brings in a sound installation to accentuate movement designed to express the process of self-examination; Shannon Gillen and Elisabeth Motley’s Doorknob Company dreams of going domestic in Julia Julia Julia Child; and the expressive dances of Nicole Wolcott in Dramarama! explore American mass media.
