Cherie Hill IrieDance presents, Détente, a premiere choreographed and performed by Cherie Hill with dancers Andreina Maldonado and Rose Rothfeder. Video by Imani Karpowich. October 12 & 13 at 8pm, and October 14 at 3pm at the Milk Bar, Richmond, CA.|
Détente, investigates displacement, the words meaning and impact. Through dance, video, and story, performers experiment with the the act or process of displacing, and what it means to be removed from the usual or proper place; specifically: to expel or force to flee from home or homeland. The work transforms internalized experience into physical expression using improvisational structures that play with ethereal senses of the body- finding and tracing invisible impressions. Dancers move in and out of solo and group phrasing dancing quickly through weaving pathways. Sections explore complex emotions via an aesthetic that is a mix of subtleness and defiance.
Featuring a special screening of Alice Street an Endangered Films documentary that captures Oakland in transition, undergoing population and culture shift, raising important questions about the need to preserve and defend arts and culture, and whether it is even possible for historically-marginalized communities to stop the momentum of gentrification once its begun - http://www.alicestreetfilm.com/home.html
