casebolt and smith, dance
October 19 @ 8 p.m. | Tickets $22/$10 | Marsee Auditorium
Described by the New Yorker as “[casebolt and smith is] clever, sometimes silly and not afraid to talk as much as they dance."
Celebrating their 15th year as a collaborative duo, Liz Casebolt
and Joel Smith bring their trademark humor and accessibility to the Marsee
Auditorium with the world premiere of close.
A complex weaving of dance, story, video, and music, close untangles casebolt and smith’s pasts to get at a deeper
understanding of their present - gesture by gesture, song by song.
close, weaves music,
storytelling and gesture to reveal the ways music we love have the power to
move, heal, and comfort us, and how our relationship to these beloved songs
changes as we age. close tends more toward a space of healing and ritual - a slow
dance that often finds us in embrace, tender partnering and dialogue with one
another as we sift through messy, confusing feelings of isolation.
Using records as stage design, prop, and to play via a record
player on stage, the overall work takes on a nostalgic tone, as the music
charges up memories. Pulling from our personal record collections, we untangle
parts of our past to get at a deeper understanding of the present: gesture by
gesture, record by record. The music that helped us cope with teenage
loneliness, now takes on a different use after 40 - when we are losing the
people around us...
