Susan Marshall & Company
Music by David Lang
In an electric guitar-fueled evening of postmodern
dance-theater, Susan Marshall couples her intimate, structured
choreography with the seductiveness of pop culture to explore our
complex relationship to the media we consume.
Marshall’s choreography adds nuance to the high-gloss aesthetic and sleek production values of popular music videos while stripping away its context, rendering it both more austere and profound. A commissioned score by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang—performed live by members of guitar quartet Dither and Mantra Percussion—animates this dialogue between the real and the virtual, in which bodies hover somewhere in between.
