Femme Fatales is a poetic trio, blending narrative and contemporary dance to bring to light the impact of gender socialization. The work is performed by three versatile female dancers in a kaleidoscope of moments that each contribute to the questions: “How have we become who we are inside of our gender? How do gender patterns inscribe in our bodies over time?” These questions have driven the work of Femme Fatales to unravel the most important reflections of all, how do we embody gender beyond a conversation from our logical mind and how do we articulate who we are with or without gender?
heart – work

heart – work emerged from the necessity to connect to the physicality and power of the heart. Through rhythm, variable frequencies, and incessant pulsing – the body of the dancer becomes the heart of the space.

Head in ten places
Spread too thin
Bite off more than you can chew
Wears many hats
Bent out of shape
In over your head.
I can’t sit still is an exploration of idiomatic expressions relating to trying to do everything at once. With a compulsion to say yes and urge to remain occupied, three parts of one can very quickly diverge from focus.
