Imposter/Malleable: dropshift dance with Andrea Cerniglia

Imposter/Malleable: dropshift dance


Imposter/Malleable is an experimental dance work by Andrea Cerniglia exploring concepts of persona, adaption, and transformation in response to situations of the physical and social realm. Performers are introduced from multiple habitats; ranging from an informal dressing room to a narrow wing space, and finally from formal center stage. Dancers move readily from space to space; utilizing an exaggerated animation of body parts, including but not limited to the face. An evening of vignettes unfolds to reveal eccentric movement entrenched within a world of evolution and periphery.

The work unites dance, textile and architectural installation pieces by Amanda Lee Franck with original and improvisational musical composition by Chris Fisher – Lochhead.
