May. 22 - May. 31, 2014
Chaddick’s two performances that comprise “Turned Inside Out” compare and contrast inner character and outside appearances. Both look at how individuals develop their identities, which are often a reflection of their surroundings, and the search for the origin of their true selves.
“Right to Wrong to Right” takes an in-depth look at the family constellation and how mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters influence and shape personal power systems. The presentation takes place around the dinner table, a symbol of the family unit and its shackling rituals. Chaddick will uncover the gravity of family influence on maturing identities and the crisis of character after the shift to adulthood and absence of the emblematic family table.
“The Perfect Offering” reveals how the images that bombard women beginning in early childhood then proceed to mold how they view femininity, beauty and power. Chaddick draws upon her own experiences to imitate the poised ballerina dolls or slender mannequins, eventually realizing that she did not know the real female image that resounded within herself.
Katherine Hodges will present two short originals: a love duet called “Someone To Hold Onto” and “Wallflowers,” a story oftwo women striving to engage more. Lindsey Taylor will show “Jupiter,” a multimedia dance piece set in a bizarre, psychedelic all-female future society.
