ChristinaNoel & The Creature is a Brooklyn-based dance theater company producing immersive performance pieces. Comprised of dancers, musicians, and visual artists, the hybrid performance medium utilizes the dancers’ voices, bodies, and individual perspectives of the world. The resulting work envelops viewers in multi-textured environments derived from human connections and encounters. The Creature’s mission is to push the boundaries of dance performance and create a space for dialogue and educational outreach.
Driven by Artistic Director & Choreographer ChristinaNoel Reaves, in collaboration with the performers and staff, The Creature artists are dedicated to the joys of fearless creation and expression; honing their skills and unique style through consistent group training and experimentation in order to expand their collective understanding of dance performance and expression.
Funnel of Love explores themes of mortality and the potential emotional and physical risks/rewards of loving and living. The work juxtaposes playful storytelling and large athletic movement within an eerie sonic container.
Thank you thank you and thank you to everyone who made this residency (Black Artist Space to Create) possible. These past two weeks have been a blessing! Not only have I been able to deepen my own personal/artistic practices, I was given the space to connect with people that I love! I was given space to reflect on love, and to prepare for what this next year (2021) will bring! Shout out to New Dance Alliance, Modern Accord Depot and Angie Pittman for the time, the space, and opportunity! I am forever grateful! It felt like a good meal, with dessert!
