Coffeehouse. May 6 & 8. 20 minutes. Olivia Goldberg, Ruey Sun, Haley Franklin AJ Munie, Caitlin Adams.
Conceived and Choreographed by Olivia Goldberg, Bete Noire is a dance-theatre performance that utilizes the theme of fear. Not the common interpretations or signifiers that emerge when fear is introduced. Fear is commonly a theme that is misused or confused with anxiety. Anxiety is related to inaction, while fear produces just the opposite: action. Fear can have a spiritual use and is a constant hunt for more life. Using live feed videos, and a projection alongside 10 dancers, this multimedia performance invites you to confront the “Black Beast” that is in us all.
