Marion Spencer
to love the rise

A dance exploring conscious femininity, ambition, growth mania, liminal space and transformation. Through movement practices and embodied sonic scapes, I investigate the body as human, animal, machine, energy and vessel for transformation as it traverses and descends deep into environments and states of liminality. It is a collage. There are lessons from Marion Woodman, Yrsa Daley-Ward and Prince. There is physical rigor and tenderness. There is glow and soft neutrals. There is sonic saturation and a symphony of silence. There is breaking, mending and listening.

Redactions, a reading

Redactions is both an expanding collection of text drawings (watercolor and ink on paper) and the performance that results from them. Following a residency period at The Chocolate Factory, Levine will present a choreographed reading of a selection of the Redactions. The performance coincides with the publication of a portfolio of the Redactions, which will be launched with an exhibition at the new Chocolate Factory space in Spring 2020. The Chocolate Factory event will be the first stop in a “performance book tour” through cities in the US, Canada and Mexico.
