The Making of Statues

A 30-minute multimedia performance with five dancers, The Making of Statues is a metaphoric coming of age, depicting five goddesses on their way to immortalization. Playful slides, hops, and reaches amidst wistful glances at the stars build into rebellious attempts at running and climbing and resolve in flexed and angular unison movement. Hands clenching into fists reaching for the swords at their sides represent a unified feminine war cry. Their fate in history is sealed whether constellations or statues.
