BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance to premiere ‘reeling -> healing’
This week, BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance will present the world premiere of reeling -> healing at Triskelion Arts’ Muriel Schulman Theater in Brooklyn. The new work is an exploration of feelings of frustration and helplessness that can occur as a result of a constant barrage of bad news and hatred.
This two-part work discusses how audiences deal with these emotions to find solace while taking action. Original music by Kevin Keller adds to a sense of urgency and the need for community, working in tandem with the choreography to immerse the audience in a fully formed world.
Performers and audience connect via The Emotional Architecture of a Bridge, an original concept drawn and created by Teresa Fellion, that is uncovered in the piece via set elements and audience interaction with text.
Furthering thoughts of togetherness, which has been an overarching theme in all past BodyStories pieces, reeling -> healing exposes the more vulnerable sides of ourselves through dance.
In addition, BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance will also present choreographer Teresa Fellion’s The Warm-Up, which premiered in August at Southampton Arts Center. The Warm-Up is described as “an active, fun, and thought-provoking piece that investigates the intersection of dance and exercise, and uncovers some of the humor in the human body”.
Performances of reeling -> healing and The Warm-Up run from November 29 to December 1 at 8 p.m. nightly. Tickets are $18 in advance or $22 at the door and are available at www.eventbrite.com. For more information on BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance, visit www.bodystoriesfellion.org.
