Perfect Piranha

Perfect Piranha moves in circles through ineffable strands of shady movement to fully-articulated declarative dancing. It emerges as an uninterrupted flow of continuous movement, veering between a whisper and a roar. Perfect Piranha gives sway to mixed emotions, evaporating patterns, and exclamatory physicality with vaudevillian flourishes. The dance concludes in an immaculate outpouring – Mandala – a dance within a dance. Mandala is an extraordinarily intricate ascending spiral that serves as soulful completion.

THE FUTURE

On July 20, 2017 The Chocolate Factory completed the acquisition of a new permanent facility in Western Queens. Located at 38-29 24th Street in Long Island City, the standalone 7,500 square foot, one story industrial building will become the organization’s permanent home and will ultimately house all of its performance and residency activity. The new facility is three times larger than its current space and, when open, will include a 99-120 seat flexible performance space with a sprung-wood dance floor, a 2,000 square foot rehearsal space, and office space.

bend the even

bend the even revisits Jennifer Monson’s research into the indeterminate phenomena that exist at the edges of human perception. The project focuses on the relationship between optics, reception and the shifting continuity between sound, light, and movement. The piece creates a system of relationships that weave the mediums of movement, sound, light and structure (both architectural and costume) together into a field of perceptual phenomena that leave the audience at the edge of comprehension. bend the even explores containment and relinquishing through ever-narrowing parameters.
