Peck School of the Arts Presents:
The Breaking Ring
By JoAnna Mendl Shaw & The Equus Projects
March 29–30 | 7:30pm
Mitchell Studio 254 (UWM Campus)
In The Breaking Ring, performers take a deep dive into physical listening and visceral decision-making, operating with heightened attending, merging sensing and thinking to create kinetic dialogue. Behavior transforms into choreographic interlude, reoccurring patterns accumulate.
Shaw and company draw their choreographic material from their work with horses where negotiation for leadership plays out with very real consequences. The Breaking Ring translates inter-species choreographic devices into human encounters. Outcomes are completely dependent on full-bodied listening, the performers each accountable for their choices.
Accountability for choices is framed as a performance event.
Performances Thursday and Friday at 7:30pm.
General $25, Seniors, UWM Faculty & Staff – $20, Students & Under 18 – $15
