Tonight at Performance Mix Festival
Stranger Danger: unraveling the dark side of the psyche || 7 PM
How difficult is it for one body, created and performed by Anna Rogovoy, is one white Jewish woman’s perspective on otherness and displacement, underscoring the importance of bodily autonomy via rigorous durational movement tasks and oral histories.
Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company
Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, will present Affront, a quartet that explores the tipping point when intimacy crosses into violence, peeking into the darker side of relationships and the pressures, dangers, and abuses that can arise. The movement language alternates between relaxed pedestrianism and razor-sharp precision.
João Costa Espinho
João Costa Espinho’s Simon 06.07.08.09 explores the interior journey of a man who is questioning himself as a specie. He wants to be something else. He wants to be a “thing.” Any “thing.” A less human “thing.” Simon is a strange dialogue between himself and his idea of imperfection, between himself and his own strangeness.

All-Star Female Soloists: love, chaos, beauty and change || 7 PM
In Gabrielle Revlock’s Performance of a Feminine Object a hoop animates a female performer making reference to the historic and cultural disciplining of the female body. There is a tension in the work between poise and chaos, beauty and awkwardness, sense and nonsense.
Gabrielle is a LiftOff Creative and Project Development Resident Artist
Toronto-based choreographer Jenn Goodwin brings her latest work, To do. To don’t, a duet with a blanket and hair. Through comfort, protection, hostility, and weight, the work touches on “being enough.” Trying to get out of bed, take it in, keep it out, change, or make change. There is a lot to do. And a lot to don’t.
Choreographer and writer Victoria Libertore returns to Performance Mix with I Want to Die One Day After You, a new solo described as an 89-year love story that comes to an end with ferocity and grace. Directed by Jennifer Tuttle. Read more
