About the Work
Lauren Beirne's latest work focuses on the tribe of women and the idea of the group vs. the other. It explores what happens when we stray out of line of our social parameters with the disturbance of the male perspective, the different places we find ourselves in life, and what we choose to assimilate to. The power of water and the concept of the pull of the tides greatly influences the movement in this piece.
Zehnder Dance premieres Bent Impulses, an exciting new work exploring what it means to be “connected.” This piece takes a deeper look at relationships and addictions between self, others, technology, and drugs through a series of duets and solos. The audience is drawn into a world of manipulation and conflict, as each moment of connection offers a glimpse into the individual’s struggle to embrace, give in, resist, or fight back. Through complex partnering, dynamic athleticism and risk taking, dancers showcase both dependency and codependency, playing between tension, conflict, desperation, isolation, and tenderness deepening our understanding of the human experience.
