Charlotte Newman and Gina Alpen: hush-hush

School for the Contemporary ArtsDance

In just over 8 minutes of dance, hush-hush explores a handful of dynamic relationships present between siblings. Watch an exploration of mimicry, shadowing, foreshadowing, and physical comfort. Through movement, see the human desire to connect to another through sharing of an engaging conversation, the joy of a secret, or a moment of stillness. To discover these relationships, it took months of brainstorming, editing, imagination, and more editing, to coalesce 8 minutes of choreography. In a fifteen-minute presentation, delve into the choreographic journey that preceded this work, the process that occurred during the work and gain a new understanding of one of the many ideas behind creating contemporary choreography. Finally, we present a unique opportunity to ask the choreographers specific questions regarding any aspect of their work.
