Vicky Shick and Dancers: Another Spell
Another Spell is the latest from Vicky Shick, who returns after her Bessie-nominated Everything You See (Danspace Project Premiere, 2013).
Another Spell sits inside a tiny hidden village of women. The audience looks in as dancers Jodi Bender, Donna Costello, Lily Gold, Marilyn Maywald-Yahel, Heather Olson, Omagbitse Omagbemi, and Shick reveal and unfold themselves. Their camaraderie guides them through their movement—authentic and feigned—as they offer stereotypes, awesome idiosyncrasies, robust exuberance and, at times, the inexplicable.
“My obsessive passion for trying to decipher nuance, detail, intimacy and the quirkiness of the everyday bubbles here,” Shick writes. “With a small acknowledgement of our tough economic times and with an abiding commitment to ongoing work, we are recycling some cherished set and costume pieces–scattering and dancing them in a new landscape.
