visions of beauty
visions of beauty—a choreography for nine men—responds to Kravas’s 2011 The Green Surround, a fundamentally unison work for nine women that analyzes their pursuit of perfection and the possibilities generated from its failure. The laborious vocabulary in this piece is difficult to achieve, teetering on the edge of degradation and masochism. visions of beauty is an identical dance except it is performed by a group of nine men with an inverted structure, both backwards and mirrored. By presenting the piece alone and alongside The Green Surround, the performance will investigate the ways gender alters and creates meaning. It questions if the choreography itself is “highly feminine,” seeking to understand how gendered perceptions materialize and shift.
