I am (not) this body

Event Type
Event Description

Winifred Haun & Dancers will premiere an important new dance, “I am (not) this body” on November 3 at the Studebaker Theater. The new work is a collaboration between Artistic Director, Winifred Haun and Assistant Artistic Director, Solomon Bowser. I am (not) this body will explore how we view “different” bodies (the bodies of women, children and people of color), and how those bodies and the humans inside them seem to be invisible or to have less value.

This engagement will also include Bento, a work from 2011 that takes its inspiration and choreography from the works of other artists (with their permission), and Don’t Linger Too Long (2013), which explores the isolating effects and importance of being with family.

The entire program is approximately 95 minutes, including intermission.
