12 SMALL DEATHS In-studio showing

12 SMALL DEATHS In-studio showing

Dec 7, 1:00pm - Dec 7, 3:00pm

Shumka Dance Centre10515 111 streetEdmonton, ABT5H 3E8 Map

12 SMALL DEATHS is a semi-autobiographical dance - and then - theater work that unveils the daily life of protagonist B.W. Beeker; a seemingly put-together and overworked baker confined by her own ideals and her basement's short ceilings. Through this solo study, we are interrogating our perceptions of existence, control, and fear of the unknown through the female gaze. Since April 2021, Tia and Katherine have been slowly chipping away at the small world of B.W. and her loved one through movement tasks, setting development, strings of choreography, and monologue writing. They will be sharing a skeleton of 12 SMALL DEATHS.

From our audience on the day of the showing, we would love to hear any questions they have about the work, any feelings (if any) that came up, or any observations about imagery, music, or narrative that resonates or are recognized in the viewer.

We see this work eventually being performed in-the-round, as a double-stacked stage set-up with the soloist on the main floor and the musician/dj on scaffolding above her.
Thank you endlessly to our collaborators and supporters: Jocelyn Mah, Julian Anderson-Bowes, Dedra McDermott, Christianne Ullmark, Clarke Blair, Aeris Korper’s PROSPECTS, Decidedly Jazz Danceworks, Good Women Dance Collective’s Space Share Program, Canada Council for the Arts.

Workshop description:
Shay Kuebler is the Artistic Director of Vancouver-based Radical System Art (RSA). His movement training was founded in martial arts and theatre, and the class will harness a range of movement methodologies, including martial arts and urban dance forms, as well as improvisational tasks to explore pathways, flows and cadences. The class will offer both the exploration of your own movement practice and specific techniques, which will then be utilized towards a phrase of movement from RSA company repertoire.

Shay began his artistic development in dramatic arts and martial arts at the age of 5. His early artistic growth would lead to a versatile background in numerous forms of dance, theatre and martial arts. His skills as a choreographer, director and performer have reached film, tv and the stage, crossing many genres from contemporary dance and theatre all the way to aqua and circus performances. He has choreographed and directed works for CitieBallet, Les Grands Ballet Canadiens, Moment Factory and Decidedly Jazz Danceworks. As the founder and Artistic Director of Shay Kuebler Radical System Art, Shay has produced and directed four full-evening works, Karoshi, Glory, Telemetry and Epilogos as well as a full-evening solo performance work, Feasting on Famine.
