Event: Friday, November 17 at 7pm
Joe’s Movement Emporium and The Clarice present the second performance of the 2017-18 NextLOOK season featuring a one-woman show exploring grief, female roles and choices in a Donald Trump America.
Alexandra Kelly Colburn enters residency at Joe’s Movements Emporium from November 13th – 17th for a 5-day residency culminating in a performance of her work-in-process termiNATION. Colburn will be creating a platform on her website to allow the public to anonymously interact with her character’s grieving process in a post-9/11 world. Audience can visit www.kellycolburn.com to explore more. The final in-process performance will take place in Joe’s blackbox theater on Friday, November 17th at 7 pm.
termiNATION is an in-process movement-based solo work investigating life and death through the lens of a pregnant war widow. Inspired by an adolescence and early adulthood steeped in the events of post-9/11 and the recent inauguration of Donald Trump, this piece explores the role women must play as we carry this new era of politics to term. In the maelstrom of American culture, 21st century colonialism and the cyclical blind faith to trust the institution, termiNATION looks to use the last sixteen years’ worth of politics, perspective and war to ask ourselves what kind of world we want to create for our children.
About the NextLOOK Series
Established in 2014, NextLOOK supports the development of new music, plays, dance and other experiences by regionally-based performing artists. Selected through a yearly application process, NextLOOK artists are given a stipend and access to rehearsal and performance space at Joe’s Movement Emporium. These artists also collaborate with The Clarice and Joe’s Movement Emporium staff to construct innovative methods of deepening the audience’s involvement in their creative process. By removing logistical barriers and providing a sounding board for artists creating new work, NextLOOK invests in the regional arts ecology and creates an accessible, exploratory environment that connects intriguing artists with adventurous audiences.
