Abstract

Moved by Marge Piercy’s poem “What Are Big Girls Made Of?” choreographers Kyla Olson and Genevieve Durham DeCesaro collaborated to create a dance piece exploring the ways in which we, as women, interact with each other, approach our bodies, and represent ourselves. Complex choreography moves between moments of tenderness and abuse, focusing on both the raw energy of group dynamics and the isolation of a dancer moving in solo. Excerpts of Piercy’s poem, read by Suzanne Aker, underscore the choreographic juxtaposition of femininity, sexuality, struggle, and companionship.
