FOR WHICH IT STANDS // Center for Performance Research

An evening length political performance that explores today’s polarizing atmosphere of off-the-rail soliloquies, SNL-bait one-liners, and Twitterized policy-making.

Consisting of 9 episodic dances that seamlessly blend humor and reality, this work uses themes ripped from the headlines to satirize the Trump Administration and invites audiences to confront the contradictions of modern political discourse, tear down the walls that divide our country, and reject the normalization of nonsense.

Focused on the reflective and transformative qualities of water, dancers submerge themselves in pools of liquid brilliance, converting technical contemporary dance into an unparalleled expression of thought.
