This September, ARCOS Dancer Kelsey Paschich presents “Exquisite Corpse,” a choreographic culmination of her graduate studies in Dance at the University of New Mexico.
“Exquisite Corpse” is an intersection of contemporary dance and media. Movement as a language makes transparent the space between dream and reality with spontaneity, juxtaposition and the element of surprise. Paschich uses film and projection to infuse images, question the perception of identity and challenge the preconceived understanding of real versus surreal. The performance exposes the manipulation and illusion of time that is transcended through live contemporary dance, projection and dance on film. The work is athletic, quirky yet refined and draws upon a classical ballet vocabulary.
“Exquisite Corpse” is part of a double bill – “C’est la Vie” – September 4-5 at 7:30 pm and September 6 at 2 pm at the Rodey Theatre in Albuquerque.
Congratulations on your MFA concert, Kelsey!
