STATE
(8 dancers, 30 minutes, 2011)

The inspiration of the choreographic work “STATE” comes from the music of popular folk artist Sufjan Stevens. His songs celebrate the rich histories, nuances, and diversity of various regions of the United States. While addressing the people indigenous to these locations, he portrays their unique stories by painting pictures of emotional states defined by physical locations.
Adapting this representation, the work addresses a range of emotions, playing off the word “state” as a means of defining emotional states as well as physical states. In the end, the piece has a raw emotionality, is extremely physical, and hopefully accessible.
The choreography features eight performers of varied ethnicity. It manifests a range of emotions as amplified in the dancer’s physical presentation: at times they appear wearing vibrant colors, at others wearing somber achromatic, black & whites.

Shadow Songs
(7 dancers, 2 actors; 24 min.; 2009)

Set to the music of Tom Waits, choreographer Rekoert’s “Shadow Songs” uses seven dancers and two actors to reveal the complexity between aggression and accepted definitions of masculinity. Dressed in bare-skinned suit-inspired costumes and featured in one-sided lighting the performers compete and explore the nuances and dichotomies of manhood.

MaSs

(19 dancers; 36 minutes; 2006)

“MaSs” addresses religion’s relationship to war. The 19 dancers in this choreography are costumed in Zentai body suits and body paint. Each costume relates to an animal, bringing mankind back to more primal times. The five sections each distinct in costume and movement vocabulary are presented in the following order:
   Mass
   Destruction
   Lives
   Here
   No More
Separate distinct moments that come together as one, culminating in the message: “Mass Destruction Lives Here No More.”

Burger Nation
(9 dancers, 77 minutes; 2004)

In “Burger Nation" nine dancers use satire to question the underlying assumptions of fast-food culture. Extrapolating from human gesture and the physical vocabulary of modern dance, “Burger Nation” portrays real people caught in contradictions of our culture and magnifies the implicit irony of using a physical art to detail a lifestyle that is so physically destructive. “Burger Nation” consists out of 18 short MTV segments with music varying from Mozart to Kelis’ “Milkshake”. Burger Nation is performed in collaboration with Martha Williams/ The Movement Movement.

PhOeNiX
(1 dancer, 5 minutes; 2005)
A breath-taking solo inspired by the imagery of firebirds. The movement vocabulary, performed to the Japanese drums of Kodo, utilizes a wide variety of jumps and creature-like crawls to amplify the constriction caused by the 7’ by 7’ cage of light. The orange painted female soloist fights, screams, and pleads with vigilance until she burns her life force with anger only to be born again. PhOeNiX also can be seen as part of the full-evening performance MaSs.
T1me m0ves 1n numb3rs (2 dancers, 8 minutes; 2007)Dressed in oversized hats and performed to the popular music of Nearly God, two lovers try to connect the disconnect between.
