ChristinaNoel & The Creature presents Belly on Saturday, November 5, 2016 at 8pm and Sunday, November 6, 2016 at 7pm at Peridance Studios, 126 E. 13th Street, NYC. Tickets for Belly are $20 ($10 for students) and are available at https://www.artful.ly/store/events/10356. For more information, visit www.christinanoelandthecreature.com.
Choreographed by ChristinaNoel in collaboration with the dancers, and danced by The Creature to live music and text composed and performed by ChristinaNoel and Aeric Meredith-Goujon, the semi-theatrical dance piece, Belly, is a panoptic review of our treatment of others. Through forced interactions around a dinner table, The Creature’s fluctuating proximity juxtaposes closeness and camaraderie with the inability to fully realize empathy for other human beings. Through both comedic and tragic lenses, Belly scopes the depths of white privilege and institutional racism. In the end the question becomes; how can we continue to reorganize our perceptions and differences to reach mutual understanding?
