the sad sanctuary / between the ritual and the weeping wall
Cornish Dance Theater
A cast of all female dancers will inhabit the courtyard at the Cornish Playhouse (Seattle Center) to perform a 45 minute site specific dance work. The sad sanctuary / between the ritual and the weeping wall explores the myriad ways women gather and inhabit space together, with special attention to notions of support and witness. The work uses this rich site as a place to play with collective imagination; the work lets the architecture host elastic images which iterate, reiterate and subvert gendered notions of bodies.
