The Disappearing Woman
A collaboration between Nell Breyer, Alissa Cardone, Lorraine Chapman, and Bronwen MacArthur
Commissioned and developed by Summer Stages Dance/Concord Academy
This world premiere multimedia dance work at the ICA addresses the anxieties of three women in an increasingly dispersed, high-speed culture. For choreographer/media artist Breyer, and dancers/choreographers Cardone, Chapman, and MacArthur, digital media serves as an enveloping, inescapable extension of the body itself. These leaders in the New England dance community explore the crossover between each individual’s movement language, media, and aesthetics
The artistic exchange between the artists began during a New England Foundation for the Arts regional Dance development Initiative and was developed over the past year during residencies at Summer Stages Dance, the Baryshnikov Arts Center, and Vermont Performance lab/Marlboro College. The Disappearing Woman is the third work created and presented as part of an ongoing partnership between Summer Stages Dance and the ICA, following site specific works by choreographers Stephan Koplowitz and Sara Rudner.
