Displaced - Fertile Ground 2016

SubRosa Dance Collective’s fourth Fertile Ground Festival appearance, Displaced, is an immersive dance performance that examines the physical consequences and emotional residue caused by displacement. With rising rents, no cause evictions, and an increasing lack of creative spaces, the results of being displaced has become a widespread conversation topic. Using non-traditional staging and a live sound score, SubRosa Dance Collective addresses the emotional fallout of displacement captured within a variety of contexts. The audience will bear witness to the emotions of being uprooted from their home, relationship, career, city, or country in this pop-up performance. Choreographers Carlyn Hudson, Lena Traenkenschuh, Cerrin Lathrop, Kailee McMurran, Tia Palomino, and Matthew Cichon share their personal displacement experiences with potent movement and tender emotions bound together with intimately engaged music and sound provided by Valerie Perczek. Run time is 40 minutes.

SubRosa performed a multimedia, site-specific piece, The Process, in the Ovation Room, a small glass room in Portland’s Armory.

From outside the glass room, observe the stress and joy of the choreographic process. Performed by Jess Evans, Lena Traenkenschuh, & Kailee McMurran.

SubRosa @ Headwaters

SubRosa Dance Collective invites you to witness an intimate sharing of dance at the charming Headwaters Theater. For this show The Collective, with guest artist Kate Rafter of Automal, has engaged in the processes of leaning in wide-eyed to peer at our shortcomings, our perceived gritty-bits of self that often lay like dim pools, untouched, mirroring a rendering of ourselves that is often fearsome and cold. These places come rippling forth, given a voice in movement that is honest, humorous, complex in implication and choreography, and performed with presence and ferocity. Choreographed and performed by Kailee McMurran, Jess Evans, Tia Palomino, Carlyn Hudson, Cerrin Lathrop, & Lena Traenkenshuh. Guest Choreography by Kate Rafter.

June 19-21 & 26-28 @ 7:30PM
Headwaters Theatre
