ODC presents Pilot 71 | SIX SECOND RULE
April 6, 8 PM
April 7, 4 & 7 PM
ODC Pilot, now in its 28th year presents SIX SECOND RULE, a collection of new works by six Bay Area choreographers. The artists investigate topics such as mapping the body, frustration in academic settings, translating joy, capturing the world through the eyes of a child, and making the human heartbeat audible.
Wonderment, created by Hayley Bowman, in collaboration with the dancers, is a piece based on seven individuals' experiences of joy. The spoken words and memories are used to generate movement that will allow us to collectively experience and viscerally remember joy. In her new work, Frustration, Alyssa Mitchel examines the frustrations that students and teachers experience in the classroom. The work, featuring four dancers and Chicago-based jazz composer, Jacob Fisher, integrates recorded interviews with twenty-six Bay Area K-8 students, school teachers, principals and professors. PULP presents their latest work Foot Fault, which asks questions about community, individuality and empathy through the exploration of deep sensational rhythms and grooves. ayanadancearts will be presenting its newest work in progress, 種/Tane, which depicts our current world shaped by adults, through the lenses of children. It will tell the story of nurture vs. abandonment from a child’s perspective, which intrinsically parallels how we see and treat our planet. Emma Lanier and Kylie Woodward-Sollesnes’s trio, The Body is a Map, views the body as a landscape that remembers all that it does and all that happens to it. This concept has led them to investigate authentic and peculiar ways of moving on the individual level, and on the collective level, to think about how a group of bodies can also become a landscape
