Description: I am who I am. Or am I?
We have different identification in different places: online, at home, at work, in the bathroom… Which one is really us? Is there such a thing as real or fake? Exploring what ID means to us…
Anna Patterson Dance Company
Arsenal Movement Dance Project “Inspired by Alice in Wonderland, ‘Operation: Alice’ focuses on an individual thrown out of a familiar place and tracks them through their adventure. It is an exploration of the battle we have within ourselves concerning the self through the use of mirrors literally and figuratively. Who are we in this world? There are always two worlds evolving around each person, the external physical world and the one flourishing inside ones mind.”

Liz Hogg is a guitarist and composer from Brooklyn, NY. Hogg has been described as “uniquely her own, writing independent music that doesn’t reflect the trends” (I Heart Noise), possessing “energy, expressive dynamics and phrasing” (American Record Guide), “fantastic work” (Classical Guitar Magazine) and “playing with a more distinctive and original approach that includes quickly-strummed chords, chiming arpeggios, and rapid-fire picking” (Geoff Cabin). Her playing has been further characterized as “strong, precise, and powerful” (Bushwick Music Daily), “radiating in its own light” (New Noise Magazine), carrying “élan and fine precision” (Fanfare), and “displaying a confrontational spectrum of emotions” (Music & Riots).
Lydia Perakis & Brouillet ESTIA//reimagined draws inspiration from the notion of the home and translates as a source of light and warmth that we all had to re-imagine and redefine during the past 2 years. The body/ home becomes an archive of our past histories, victories, traumas and people we’ve encountered and the unfolding of all of that information propels our storytelling.
NewBrese Dance ‘Within Us’ explores the communal instincts amongst us as a society to help one another through times of hardship and doubt. We ask ourselves, what can happen when we come together in times of disarray rather than have the hardships tear us apart?
