Austin Dance Festival | Saturday, March 5th at 5 pm | AustinVentures StudioTheater
ARCOS is thrilled to present “Sister” at this year’s Austin Dance Festival, which brings together companies and independent artists from Texas and across the region.
Sister is a sketch of a scene for a new evening length work dealing with phases of change. This particular scene is an experiment with the sterile and isolating feeling of hospitals in contrast with the comfort of family surrounding a tragic event. The dancers wear clear plastic bags shaped with duct tape – an abstraction of the traditional hospital gown, lab coat, surgical scrubs – and vacillate between stupor and frenzy much like the conflicting emotion of sudden and shocking bad news.
