Faculty Angie Pittman Performs for Roulette
I’ll tell you, but please be still is a dance performed by two people dancing together and apart. The dance is growing from Angie Pittman’s embodied research into Darkness in the style of Audre Lorde and Piracy in the manner of Nina Simone.
“These places of possibility within ourselves are dark because they are ancient and hidden; they have survived and grown strong through darkness.” — Audre Lorde, Poetry is not a Luxury (1985)
This dance looks to narrative for a nudge, and coexists with daydreams. It relies heavily on the movement to make the meaning and embraces change. This dance is at the volume it wants to be.
