A collaboration between four Front Range dance artists
Lauren Beale, Brooke McNamara, Ondine Geary, & Kate Speer
XX gravitated together because we crave performative experiences that require the performer and the audience to keep asking, to keep learning, and to keep arriving fully. Based in the Boulder/Denver area, we move in and out of collaborative based projects and our own individual queries.
Lauren Beale, Brooke McNamara, Ondine Geary, and Kate Speer juggle multiple identities as performance artists, choreographers, improvisers, teachers, and for some of us, as mama bears. We met at the University of Colorado Boulder in the Dance MFA program, where we shared an interest in cultivating more open and supported spaces for art.
XX: Where’s the Power?
XX: Where’s the Power? exercises our readiness to turn on, transfer, and transmute power through unhinged, corporeal dissent against the patriarchal grab. In this evening of performance, we slam our heartbroken and hungry bodies into the body politic to access our own interior pulse and reconnect to something larger than fear. In an effort to confront the very nature of insecurity, we ask, “Where’s the power?” What follows is an absurd ride through hysteria, struggle, grief, and release as we search for the possibility of a higher love.Learn More
