Note: program contains nudity

Jumping off from the discoveries they have made through their five-year Undressed Project, Dandelion Dancetheater has created a new dance/theater work, Anicca (a Pali word translated as “impermanence”). Anicca challenges body image prejudice by illuminating the impermanence of all bodies, placing beauty concerns in a larger and more pressing context.

Anicca taps into the vulnerability of full nudity, while simultaneously subverting audiences’ expectations around costumes, utilizing partial nudity, underwear, and awkward combinations of clothing. The work looks at body politics, power dynamics, the lines between sensual, sexual and medical nudity, aggression, violence and multi-layered responses to mortality. Created as a site-specific journey, Anicca will be performed throughout Project Artaud Complex--leading audiences from Noh Space, through hallways and alcoves into the parking lot and “Jackhammer Park.”

Man, are you busy! It all sounds great! Don't forget to get some rest.

I hope that Dandelion comes east some day.
